Sense and Sensibility - Pretty Drawstring Tote Bag

Hi friends! It's Karen from Creamcraft Goods. I'm excited to share my latest project for the latest licensed Jane Austen collection from Riley Blake Designs - Sense and Sensibility. If you are a Jane Austen fan like me, you will love this beautifully curated collection of prints taken directly from the original Jane Austen quilt.

For this project I wanted to create something that I think one of her characters would use or even Jane herself! This Pretty Drawstring Tote can hold your everyday treasures, a book or two, journal, and more!

For the body, I made a large hexagon panel which I stitched together and machine quilted using a decorative stitch. I added tea-dyed eyelet lace (which I dyed myself, to give it an antique look) to hold the velvet ribbon drawstring.

I hope you enjoyed my project and you are inspired to create beautiful things with this lovely collection. Sense and Sensibility will start shipping in October, so check to see if your favorite shop will carry it. 

Thanks for reading along!
