An Apple Picking Tote

I found this really cool tote bag tutorial by:Purl Bee
it would be great to make to go along with a really pretty fall apron too!!..Hope you enjoy it as much as I do and Thank You Purl Bee *Molly * for creating this tutorial for all of us!
The Purl Bee shares a tutorial for making this beautiful linen and cotton reusable tote, inspired by that beloved harvest-time activity, apple picking!

Molly's Sketchbook: An Apple Picking Tote

Molly used Globalweave's Loose Weave Linen from India for the body of the bag and I totally fell in love with it. It has the most amazing heavy drape and natural look. This fabric would also make very elegant curtains or the base of a lovely embroidery project.If you want to make your very own apple picking bag check out my Apple Picking Tote Project Journal. Of course you don't just have to use this bag to lug apples, it's sturdy enough to take to the farmers market or grocery store. And if you live in California you could use it to pick oranges! Here are two "pick your own" apple orchards in New York State that I have enjoyed visiting:Wilklow Orchard Wright's Apple Farm For other states (and even more orchards in New York) check out Pick Your Own.Enjoy! --Molly
