Frida Kahlo Professional Tote

I managed to snag the last 1.5 yards of this Frida fabric in central Florida and made this professional tote for a swap. The bag is a labor of love-it takes about 8 hours to construct. There are 16 pieces and they all need interfacing before you can even begin to sew it all together. Totally worth it though for such an amazing outcome.
Pattern: Professional Tote from Creative Thimble
Fabric: Alexander Henry Todo Para Ti


And I had enough fabric left to make myself a mask and this scissor case

Oh this is fabulous. I’ve been eyeing frida fabric to make my friend something. Maybe a tote like this might be the thing! (Although maybe not this particular labor intensive one. Lol)

Beautiful job!

I think this fabric is the cover of a journal I received…made by @Fonduie.

Love the bag, though. Sixteen pieces! Ack!

I was sick and must have missed this when it was posted. It is fantastic. The fabric is beautiful and I am a sucker for a fussy cut. Is the fabric cotton? Because it looks very high quality. Beautiful job!
