tea towel tote

hmm.. now if only I had some tea towels as gorgeous as these... the instructions for how to make the tote are here :)

There are some more things you can make using the free patterns here thanks to Anna Maria Horner (Anna is also the author of this gorgeous book "Seams to Me" which is also on my bookshelf wishlist :)

She has designed some beautiful things, paper goods, kitchen items, home furnishings and she also has some lovely fabrics for sale here too as below... where does she find the time?

which bag today?

What a great idea, if you change handbag every other day as I do then check out the stylish "Drop it Bag" here it will so much easier to remember where my things are, and just think how much quicker I'd be out the door! :)

You can get one via the ArtE Dubai Etsy account here or if you hurry the last ArtE Market is on this Friday the 12th check for more details here.
