Sewing with London Icons Linen Cotton Canvas!
London Icons fabric from Montgomery Fest available in our Shop
When we were dreaming up sewing projects for MontgomeryFest's new London Icons fabric, printed here in our shop, Willow & C.'s London Backpack immediately sprang to mind. While any of these prints would look great, we were really drawn to the bold and graphic style of Lettering in Grey complimented with Striped in Black on the flap. Both were printed on our Linen Cotton Canvas option, a sturdy yet supple fabric that is sure to withstand the rigors of travel, whether you're out and about town the or around the globe. Head over to our Blog for a better look at this fun bag!
