Yet another screen tote :>))

June 06, 2011 • 9 responses

I can't help myself....I am addicted to making these screen tote bags!  I found this adorable Loralie floral fabric at a quilt shop in Celeste, TX ~ The Quilt Mercantile,  a few months back and didn't know what I was going to make with it (you don't have to know what you are going to do with it to buy it, right?) but figured it would be a tote of some sort.  Just wish I had bought more fabric now - isn't that always the case?

I added a zipper to this bag and tabs on the ends of the handles to jazz it up a bit.   The applique with the monogram on the front is the Marie Frame from Planet Applique.  What do you think? 


  • Michelle I am sew in love with this bag I cannot even tell you. Would you mind sharing what the screen is that you use and the pattern. I NEED to make one of these.

  • Thanks for all the sweet comments! The bottom is screen. You could add a covered cardboard insert if you wanted but it is sturdy enough without it.

  • WOW! It is stunning! I love the little tabs you added to the handles, and … well gosh, I just love it all! It’s beautiful.

    I’m curious – is the bottom of the bag made of screen or fabric?
