Multi Tote Bag - Strawberry Jam for Riley Blake Designs

Hello! It is hot hot hot. I'm seriously melting over here in Southern California. It's still spring, but it feels like Summer already. This made me want to make a huge bag! A bag that you can stuff all your summer goodies in like a straw hat. Strawberry Jam fabric by Lauren Brewer for Riley Blake Designs is perfect for spring into summer sewing. It has the cutest strawberry prints, bunnies peeking behind cute dainty florals, and beautiful floral prints using the prettiest color pallette. 

I made the tote bag multi-functional of course. You can either use it open in it's tote position, or you can bring the side together with the button strap inside to make it boxier. Either way, it will hold a lot of your stuff! I added roomy elastic side pockets to hold water bottles, and a front pocket for your cell phone and keys. 

Here is what I made:

Strawberry Jam will be arriving soon, so check your favorite quilt/fabric shop to see if they carry it.
