Features & Specifications

La Boheme is a fabulous tote and provides you with lots of options to add embellishments! The quilted central panel is great just quilted and it's also the perfect place to add your favorite handwork details such as beading and embroidery. The La Boheme Tote is made using 44" wide quilting cotton in my Celestial and Glow prints from my 'Hapi' collection for Rowan. This Tote can be best made using any print with a focal design for the Exterior, Flange and Side Panels. Choose from two Handle styles: Fabric Straps embellished with optional ribbon, or Leather Straps made from repurposed leather belts. Instructions for optional beading techniques are included. Have fun creating your masterpiece! - Love, Amy


The yardage given is for a one-way design.  Please allow extra yardage for matching or centering a design on your fabric.
