Caravan Tote : Liberty + Chambray

By now you know that I like to put Liberty into anything that can be Liberty-d. I just do not tire of this amazing fabric and the hundreds of intricate yet delicate designs. This time, I gave the Caravan Tote the Liberty treatment. Of course I paired it with some chambray (from Andover) because Liberty + chambray make the most beautiful couple.20150405-DSC_0078

This gorgeous Liberty print, Glencot House (which was purchased from Duckadilly), features a landscape scene full of lush greenery and florals. I wouldn’t call it a traditional Liberty print, just because it features a scene rather that a repeated grouping of florals. It is a beauty, though, isn’t it? It makes me want to go to Europe right this moment, and throw away my phone and computer, and just sew and garden for the rest of my days. A girl can dream….20150405-DSC_0067

I just adore this bag. Anna Graham really outdid herself with this one. Its a terribly useful tote, and I know this one will get a lot of use.

My snap setting skills improved somewhat this go round. I’m glad of that!20150405-DSC_0063

The pocket lining is a gorgeous dot from Dear Stella.20150405-DSC_0071

The grey solid is from Free Spirit, and the green is an RJR cotton supreme solid (coordinates with Cotton and Steel).20150405-DSC_0075

This palette is quite toned down from my normal bold, saturated look. But I do love it. I love the serenity of both the colors and that gorgeous Liberty print. That’s exactly what I was hoping to “feel” with this bag, and I think its there.

Thanks for stopping by!
