Poll | Convertible Totes

As I begin the run up to Fall shows, I would love to make some of the convertible totes that I worked up the prototype for this summer. Although I haven’t worked with commercially printed fabric for years, Daisy Janie’s new Shades of Grey fabric was just the perfect foil for my hand-dyed jewel tones:

I love these, and…I really love my hand dyed fabrics too. So I made some tote bags with some really fun multicolor fabric:

So, I have a dilemma! I’ve consistently only made things to sell that are comprised of my hand-dyed fabric. Using Jan’s prints would be a huge departure from this model, and I can’t decide what to do! Thus – the poll. If you could take a moment and let me know what you think, that would be great! (If you’re reading this through an RSS reader, you may have to click through to the post to see the poll.

Don’t forget – I’ve got a giveaway running, it closes this Wednesday, have you entered yet?

One more look, I just love these bags! 🙂

  1. I loved both fabric styles and I think they will appeal to even more people in both styles. I absolutely love that you can make this bag tall or short. What a great idea! Where will you be selling your bags?

  2. I say make some of each. That way, you’ll have something that appeals to a larger audience. Also, I don’t know how you’re planning your displays, but you might consider large prints of the different ways the bags can be used.

  3. These are gorgeous bags love them. Think you definatley keep making both. I also have a give away i am celebrating Finishing touch Interiors 1st birthday pop on over

  4. I think your thread work is another factor that makes these bags “yours”. So as long as you continue to use at least some of your hand-dyes and your adorable quilted motifs, they’ll scream Candy’s!

  5. They’re all great, but if I was choosing one to buy for myself, it would definitely be all hand-dyed! They’re stunning while the others are really nice, imho.
