4 fabrics ... 3 totes

Today I visited one of my favorite fabric stores. I do a lot of my fabric shopping on the web, but there is nothing better than seeing and touching the fabric in person. It can make all the difference in visualizing the finished product. I really like the ladies at this particular shop. They seem to get as excited as I do about the fabrics I choose.

Today I came away with four fabrics. Three came from a line called "Arcadia" by Sanae for Moda. The fourth is a Valori Wells creation (top left) from her "Deh Li" line. I adore all four of these beautiful fabrics and was having a terrible time trying to figure out which two I should use for a new tote, so I decided to buy all four fabrics and make three different totes using a different variety of fabrics and pattern each time. I agree that sometimes less is more, but in this case more is more. Don't you agree?
