I love the new polar bear fabric by Mico Ogura. The bears in pants and scarves are super adorable, and the print comes in beautiful shades of blue, pink, and yellow. Aren’t they great? These are insulated snack sleeves, by the way.
But my favorite color is grey. So when a client asked me to make not one but two tote bags in this grey polar bear fabric, I knew they would turn out pretty special.
This is tote bag number one: It is a simple gusseted tote bag, but very large in size.
The bag has a recessed zipper closure at the top. There are two inside pockets: an exposed zipper pocket, and a patch pocket. I love how the bear heads are lining up at the zipper side and on the handles!
Here’s what the gusseted bottom looks like.
And here’s tote bag number two!
It’s smaller than the first one, and great for everyday use as a handbag.
It has an oval bottom like my bucket diaper bags.
There are two patch pockets inside, and a carabiner tab on the side.
I hope these polar bears will bring my client lots of smiles!
