Knickerbocker Glory Cotton Tote Bag
My favourite kind of ice cream has to be the Knickerbocker Glory! Layers of different flavours, ice cream, jelly, fruit, cream, sauce all with a cherry on top.
My inspiration for this sketch style embroidered tote is the queen of ice creams. I have used cotton, silks, tulle and sparkly thread for this tote bag, trying to capture the flavours and textures of the original. I have free motion stitched the tall glass and spoon in black thread in keeping with my original drawing. I think the addition of a jumbo ric rac and suitably ice cream coloured ribbon trim the perfect finishing touch.
The tote is fully lined with a seaside feel striped blue cotton fabric and has an internal patch pocket for keeping small things to hand. The straps are a comfortable wide width and can be worn on the shoulder. The bag fastens with a magnetic closure.
This one-of-a-kind tote would make a pretty hold all for summery days.
Cotton Calico and cotton lining. Magnetic closure.
Tote measures 37cm x 38cm with handles 68cm approximately
