Hi friends! I am so excited to release a new bag pattern today! I’m calling this one The Amalfi Tote , meaning ‘from Italy’. Amalfi is an Italian town in the province of Salerno and also the name of the lovely floral fabric used as an accent on this bag. This region is known for its beautiful terraced gardens, and this bag reminds me of just that!
Not only is it beautiful, but it can be used for just about anything. I’m using to carry my knitted works in progress, but it’s also a beautiful book bag, purse, travel bag or all-craft tote! It’s literally the perfect craft tote in my opinion!
