Mmmmm Green and Raspberry - love it!

You know whenever you see a colour combination and you think Wow!  

Well, this is what I thought about this combination of raspberry and green.  

Whenever I had decided to join in the Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote Sew-Along I knew I wanted to use some of my stash.  I loved the fabrics when I pulled them out but it was not until I had the bag sewn together that I thought - boy that really works!

I used the raspberry for the straps, bottom, lining and top of the bag and then used the green floral for the body and strap converters.
I am really, really mega late in finishing this (in fact the finishing date was some time in March) sew-along but I am so glad I did.

This super bag is two bags in one.  It is a shoulder bag which then converts into a handy backpack - hands free whenever you need it - very clever! 

As with all of Leah's Sew Spoiled patterns they are PDF (no snail mail so no stalking the postman).

They well written with clear instructions, suitable for anyone, clear instructional photographs accompanying each step - I can thoroughly recommend all of them.

There is also a Flick group for the other Cabrio Totes that have been sewn up, see them HERE.
