Plane kidlet

I made this little kidlet tote using the tutorial from JCasa Handmade. It is a great project for a beginner, or maybe someone that wants to get into bag making but is intimidated by a bigger project. It is essentially, a tote bag with only one handle, so can basically be adapted into a normal bag too. They look really cute with patchwork pockets too, but I had this japanese linen blend lying around so decided to use that.

It’s sweet isn’t it? And I also had some (read: tons) of gorgeous linen and cotton blend fabric from Namolio which matched perfectly. It wasn’t intentional, but I like how the printed red stripes match up on the bag bottom really well.  There’s also a stripe just at the top of the bag too.

The red lining is a thick suedette upholstery fabric, a remnant I found in the Designers’ Guild showroom. I used it for the baby shoes I made a while ago too.
