On Cloud 9 with GeoCentric Fabric

If you are visiting from Sew Mama Sew, Welcome! Earlier this month I received three half yards of GeoCentric canvas from Cloud 9. Beth from Sew Mama Sew set up the bag challenge and asked if we would create bags from two of the three GeoCentric prints. The three half yards I received were; circles in metal, diamonds in sky and interlock in sprout. These prints are beautiful and work well together.
When I started making my Sew Spoiled Tote the prints looked so good together I had trouble choosing where to place each print. After many suggestions on Facebook the conclusion was diamonds in sky for the focus fabric with circles in metal for the pockets. The GeoCentric canvas is 7 oz. in weight, so I used interfacing to make it a little sturdier. The straps are made from 1.25" canvas webbing. 
The bag design is my own and is written for 3 sizes small, medium and large. It will be available this fall 2013. Make sure you visit my shop for more Sew Spoiled ePatterns.
I love my new summer Tote. The interior is white with 2 slip pockets in Cloud 9 canvas. I monogramed the center with machine embroidery using the circle three letter monogram from Rivermill Embroidery.
Thanks again for stopping by please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. 
Thank you Cloud 9 for the beautiful prints! Thank you Beth and Sew Mama Sew for setting up the GeoCentric Bag Challenge.
