Coloring on the Farm - Drawstring Tote Bag

Hello! It’s Karen from Creamcraft Goods! I love cute fabric, but I love cute children’s fabric even more! The newest Crayola licensed collection for Riley Blake Designs - Coloring on the Farm is adorable! It has the sweetest farm animal illustrations, texts and prints in the most colorful Crayola color palette that will excite any child (I know mine are!).

Here’s the Drawstring Tote Bag I made:

For this project, I wanted to create an extra large tote bag so my son can stuff his growing collection of plushies in them. He dislikes fiddling with zippers or buttons, so I chose a drawstring closure to make it easily accessible to his prized plushies! I added pockets on both sides, so he can stuff a few toy cars or farm animals too.

I chose the blue and red prints with a surprise burst of yellow inside, which are my son’s favorite colors. The colors are vibrant and illustrations are sweet. How cute is the text on yellow print for the inner bag? I quilted the outer bag to make it sturdy. I added soft handles in the red chicken wire print and used the blue chicken wire print for the drawstring casing to bring it all together.

I hope you enjoyed my Drawstring Tote Bag and new collection, Coloring on the Farm. Maybe it will inspire your next creative project!

Coloring on the Farm is arriving in stores now, so check your favorite Quilt/Fabric shop to see if they carry it.
