Latest Fashion in Tote Bags

I worked on some totes this weekend. The Chocolate Flower tote was completed this summer (wrote about it on July 26), but something was missing. In general, I am also not liking the big blobs of fabric that the big outside pockets tend to become. I found a random piece of ribbon with the perfect colors. I used it to embellish the tote’s outside pocket last night. When I auditioned it, I thought the ribbon made the green in the flower print stand out.
In future totes I want to work on making the outside pocket less of a big blob.

My newest tote is the eggplant/lemon tote. I started it on my summer vacation, but didn’t work on it again until this weekend, .
The lemon flower fabric is from a recent Moda collection (Fresh Squeezed by Sandy Gervais??). I love the colors in the vegee/eggplant fabric. It is a very fun fabric that I would, probably, never use in a quilt.

Here is the inside of the bag. I have started to put large pockets on the insides of all the bags in addition to the small pocket. They are very useful.
