I've finished my Getaway design and just love the fabric. Still reminds me of a hazy summer day at the beach.
As you can see, I ended up choosing the blue stripe for the binding of the notebook cover and for the contrast in the tote. I didn't have quite enough for the handles of the notebook cover as well, so I used the red stripe for that.
I added a twisted cord to both the tote and the notebook cover. I wanted to add something to help keep them closed and a button looked a bit too organised. A twisted cord seemed to fit in with the free and easy idea of getting away.
The tote is a nice generous size without being too big - finished size is 14.5" (h) x 18" (w). The pocket on the front has a postcard stitchery written to 'me' with the message 'have fun!' - very fitting for a getaway. Dont' you think.
The pattern is in printed format only and is available on my website.
Until next time
