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


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.

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.

This bag is amazing. So cute, well made and holds everything.

Absolutely beautiful and beautifully made! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This bag is so beautiful! I love this pattern and it means a lot to me as a Registered Nurse that it was inspired by Florence Nightingale. The attention to detail is fantastic. The pattern is lined up exactly the same on both sides, the pockets are large, the waxed canvas is softer than expected and the handles and clasp are great quality. Arrived faster than expected. I would love to get this pattern on the makeup bag and glasses case in the future.
