Aiko Tote kits

I am a little bit disturbed by how quickly Christmas (or should I say "the holiday season") is creeping upon us. I am jealous of other blogs with all their cute domestic christmassy themed posts. Making ornaments & handmade gifts, decorating the house - generally being all well rounded and wholesome. And here I am still blabbing on about work work work.

I'm planning to stock my shop up with some mix packs sooon, but meanwhile, FINALLY, here are some kits for my 'Aiko' tote bag design - maybe for that crafty person in your life?


Aiko Tote kit - plum acacia


Aiko Tote kit - chocolate birch

The kits are packed with heaps of stuff. Large chunks of fabric, interfacing, a magnetic catch, instruction booklet and full scale pattern pieces. Everything you need, basically. And not that hard to follow with all my pretty diagrams in there.



Hope your December is starting to wind down a bit. Happy Summer, too!

Oh no, all Christmas activity is being done in snatched minutes and moments. I am working through the silly season, so am feeling a great deal of pressure to bring it all together.

What a great bag - love both of them. I agree about all the Xmas stuff - especially the people who have lots of photos of completed crafts. I'm all "what, you're not going to be finishing up on Christmas Eve like me?" I just assume they've kidnapped some elves or something.

Nice tote... I too have bought one for me through eBags.

I love the chocolate one! I'm trying not to let Christmas get too stressful this year - I just want to enjoy the time off and relax!

Hey Lara, I'm loving all the new natural colour combinations. Also your new graphics on your header and packaging! You have been busy :)

Love the Chocolate birch fabric. And the totes look good too.

Totally agree with you about getting ahead with the Christmassy stuff. I've finally got around to making some ornaments, but will there be time to list them on Etsy? No way, Jose! Next year maybe.

Love the kits - brilliant idea.

Hope December winds down most pleasantly from now on for you.
