Folk Modern

I love the line Folk Modern by Ellen Luckett Baker that came out a few months ago especially the gray and yellow combo but resisted buying some! But I finally had an excuse to buy some since a friend and I are swapping some handmade goodies. (I can’t knit and she can) She asked for a tote and gave me a few color combo options. I knew exactly what fabric to buy when she said gray and yellow!

I hadn’t actually made the 241 tote in the proper size only smaller for my girls (here and here) It is such a great sew! Awesome pattern too. I paired it with some Robert Kaufman Putty Linen and some Art Gallery fabric for the lining.

I also made a matching Pocket Clutch. You can find the pattern here at Michelle Patterns. I think that is makes the perfect chap stick and small hand cream pouch for in your purse.

Put them together and they are the perfect combination!

Beautiful work, Samantha! Your sewing is impeccable. My bags always look a little...tortured around the tops but your pouches and bags are always so crisp and finished perfectly. What a gorgeous combo of fabrics and items!

I loooove these!! What is the fabric you used for the lining? I'm in the process of restocking my grays and I'm on the lookout for great prints!
