Arroyo Explorer Totes - NoodleheadI’m so excited to share these Explorer Totes today!!! I made them a few months ago for Erin Dollar’s new collection Arroyo for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. The instant I saw the fabrics I knew I couldn’t say no! I love Erin’s work and have enjoyed following along with her journey in the last few years. Her aesthetic is minimal and gorgeous and of course it makes sense that I love her new fabric collection. Slap it on some Essex and you’ve got me buying it by the bolt. I’m all googly eyes, you had me at hello.Arroyo Explorer Totes - Noodlehead

I loved pairing Arroyo with my Explorer Tote pattern, it’s great for showcasing those gorgeous prints. I ended up making the small and large size of the tote because they make a great pair, right?! And of course I decided that all leather handles were fun to use (feel free to swap out the fabric handles in the pattern for leather or cotton webbing, I love seeing how it switches up the look!).Arroyo Explorer Totes - Noodlehead

These were made with Big Sur canvas for the contrast fabric requirement instead of waxed canvas. I give instructions in the pattern in case you’re not into using waxed canvas or want to use something you have on hand. It’s an easy modification and I love the results. The Big Sur canvas is really nice to work with and there are tons of colors, I’m definitely planning on stocking up!Arroyo Explorer Totes - Noodlehead

I was happy too to see the rest of the Arroyo collection, so many great colors!! I mean seriously, so good! Plus a huge palette of neutrals. I can’t wait to see what everyone makes using it.

What are you sewing lately? I’m feeling the need to make everything right now, it kind of drives me crazy to feel this rush of creativity and inspiration but I’ve learned in the past few years to just roll with it! Yay sunny weather!Arroyo Explorer Totes - Noodlehead
