Clematis Shopping Bag

(132)
Difficulty: Easy

The Clematis Shopping Bag is the perfect tote for any shopping trip, for toting groceries, or as a picnic/lunch tote for the individual or the whole family.

The large shopping bag and small lunch tote can be made striped and adorned with the Clematis flower for an eminently feminine look, or try rugby stripes or solids (without flower) for a great-looking but entirely unisex and utilitarian set of bags perfect for groceries, picking up items at the mall, or used for a family picnic or as individual lunch tote.

Felted bags are particularly well-suited as totes for groceries and picnics because they are naturally insulated, don't lose their shape or their immense carrying capabilities when wet, and withstand even harsh treatment, all the while looking fantastic.

    Clematis on the Vine Pattern

    (216)

    Delivery Method:

    Clematis is a genus that contains hundreds of species. What is surprising is that it in the buttercup family. Once you know this, perhaps you can see it: some Clematis, such as Armandi with five petals or Rooguchi with only 4, have a simplicity that makes them a resting place for the eye. 

    The Clematis here is a bit more floriferous and bold, with larger blossoms that present themselves more forcefully. The bi-colored clematis was inspired by the blossoms of Clematis Barbara Jackman, dark veins down their centers with lighter outlines.

  • Creamy Pewter Cowl

    Window Shopping in Soho Complete Kit

    (1316-KT-C)

    Color:

    This cowl design was inspired by a scarf I saw in a shop window in New York. I have taken many liberties with the design I saw, of course, and completly Nonified it. It is a unique cowl that, when wrapped around your neck twice, snuggles close and keeps out the brisk winds. Alternatively, leave it unwrapped when winds are not so brisk: it wears like an art piece you picked up in a shop in, well, Soho, that specializes in all things fine and custom-made.
