Lotus and Firefly Roll Top Waxed Canvas Shoulder Tote Bag - Canvas Bag - Rolltop Purse - Screen Printed - Project Sweater Bag


Most of my items are currently made-to-order. Please review processing times in Shipping & Policies before ordering.

This pattern was inspired by Florence Nightingale, social reformer, statistician and founder of modern nursing. It’s part of my 2022 project, “Above and Beyond - A Celebration of Women in History through Print and Pattern”.

This waxed canvas water-resistant tote bag can be used as an everyday purse, gym bag, knitting or crochet project bag.

- Unique screen printed fabric panels on both sides
- Three exterior pockets for phone, keys, etc., including one snap closure pocket on the backside
- Two interior flat pockets
- Leather straps with 10” drop
- Durable construction, built to last

Front and Back Panel Fabric: Cotton Canvas
Waxed Canvas Body: Chocolate Brown Waxed Canvas
Inside Lining: Cotton Canvas

Exterior Dimensions (top folded): 12.5 inches wide at bottom (17.5 inches wide at top) x 12.5 inches high x 5.5 inches deep

I created the bag design, designed the front panel fabric, screen printed the fabric panel and then sewed it all together with care.

Because this item is handmade, the print / pattern may vary.

Care instructions: Spot clean only. Waxed canvas may feel slightly tacky at first, but the wax will wear into the fabric, which creates a rugged appearance; perfect for the rainy Pacific Northwest.

This bag was handmade by Heidi West in Portland, Oregon.

I did a lot of research prior to making this purchase since it was for my’s Birthday. What is mentioned in prior reviews is correct and the product is very unique and well made, thank You for the great experience.

Love, love, love this bag! So excited to start using it. It’s excellent quality, well made and so attractive. I know I will be getting lots of compliments on it. Heidi delivered as promised. I had previously purchased the chicken napkins which were also beautiful. Will return again to shop and recommend . ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have many project bags for my knitting- this is absolutely the most beautiful bag I have ever purchased. The quality puts other high-end project bags to shame for about half the price. This is my second bag from this shop and I highly recommend it and this responsive seller. It stands flat on its own- which is great for travel knitting in the car or at the knitting group and holds a sweater project, yarn, notions and my iPad Pro with room to spare. I can’t recommend this enough.

This bag is beyond my expectations. The workmanship is perfect and the materials exquisite. I used it the very day I opened the package. Thank you!

Beautiful and functional! I love the buckle closure and patttern.
