Make simple tote bags with The Purl Bee

Outside Oslo, the fabric line I designed for The Needle Shop, is now stocked at Purl Soho. A beautiful store in New York City, Purl Soho has an equally lovely blog that showcases projects made from the goodies they sell. Check out these Oslo tote bags that take just twenty minutes to whip up. Find a link to the instructions in The Purl Bee post right here.

Cute bags, too! They'd be handy for a lot of things.

Wow! I absolutely love your eye for design! The fabric is so appealing. It really makes me want to create something out of it.

Congrats on getting your fabric in the very cool Purl Soho store. What an accomplishment.

OMG! I was just at Purl Soho during my vacation and tried to buy one of the bags made from your fabric but they wouldn't let me as they were for a class tutorial. I was so bummed so yay for this.

What a fabulous place to have carry your fabric. Awesome! And I've always wanted to be able to stitch a tote bag together...maybe it's not so difficult?

Congrats on the tutorial feature! I've yet to pop into their store, but I'll have to do so soon if only to check out your fabrics.

Purl Soho is my mother's happy place. Thus, I get dragged there often. I'll have to snap a photo next time I'm there!
