Finally. It is done. A collaboration work with my husband. I feel very nervous during the 3 days of making the bag. From designing, drafting the patterns (which was done by him), cutting the templates and sewing (done by me, of course :)) And here it is, the prototype of Jasmine 2 in 1 tote.
Oh, I love his ideas for the bag - Jasmine (and he named it too!) I'm just being generous to let him do the honour of naming the bag and let him participate a lot during the making of the bag (so, we can spend more time together ahaha...gatalnya saya ;))

With working mamas that carries a toddler and travel in the LRT, in mind, came the idea of making this 2 in 1 tote. While carrying your little one, you can easily turn the tote into backpack :)
I use Thai silk in maroon with stripes. Fully interfaced and layered with plain fabric to add sturdiness.

Oh, please ignore my poor craftsmanship as this is only a prototype. We'll be changing/adding better accessories in time to time.
P/S: But, sometimes it feel really good to sew recklessly and no need to unpick stitches...but only once awhile haa!

|Padded shoulder straps, that's the slip pocket I'm talking about :)|
More details in my shop blog little-iro-iro. The design is open for order. It comes in build in organizer pockets inside or separate organizer.
Oh, and the bag has magnetic closure on both mode :)
