If you’ve been keeping up with the latest things happening with the Tangled Strands Etsy shop, you may have seen the new tote bags already. If not, no worries, I’ll give you the grand tour of the new listings.
Recently I acquired a collection of medium and heavy-duty fabrics that are perfect for my line of large tote bags. I like to use heavier weight fabrics for these bags because I know that totes receive so much more abuse from day to day use than the project bags. You use them to carry stuff to and from work, as large project bags, as gym bags, as book bags, and as general-use-for-everything bags. They’ve got to hold up to all of that activity, and they’ve got to look good doing it!
So here are the newest additions to the Tangled Strands large tote bag line. (Click the photos to be taken straight to the listings.) Each one is sized to hold one large and two small Tangled Strands drawstring project bags, with room to spare for a notions case, project notes, and extra needles/hooks. That’s a lot of yarny goodness!
First up, a lovely natural and black chevron stripe.
If you’re looking for a color infusion, I’ve got you covered there too – with large scale florals in cheerful colors.
As a reminder that I also take custom orders, here’s a peek at a large tote bag I recently completed on commission. My design direction was “lake house or beach theme,” and I had a blast looking for the right fabric for this project. I presented several options, and my client chose these fun beach shacks. I foresee sandals and a pile of summer reading material in this bag’s future!
