Autumn's tote bags in Dutch wax prints, lemons and daisies

ukulele tote bags by Ivy Arch
Here are six new ukulele tote bags for autumn. Four of them are cut from different pieces of Dutch wax print fabric. I love the super bright colours found on this type of material and have a small collection of Dutch print fabrics bought variously at street markets in Shepherd's Bush and Worthing, as well as from African fabric shops in London's Petticoat Lane. I've used it to make everything from dresses to wall hangings for my home but thought a range of tote bags in these highly patterned prints with contrasting appliqued ukes would look fabulous.

The other two new bags in this collection are made from a Scandinavian style retro daisy print designed by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. I've matched it with a cheerful lemon and lime print cotton by Ikea.
