The Tote Bag!

The other day when I said to my 3 year old daughter that I was going to make her a bag her little eyes lite up like it was Christmas morning. It literally melted my heart! You see until now I've yet to make the girl a bag of her very own! How sad is that!?! It's a little crazy if you think about it. The poor girl is always asking "is that for me mommy?" So I finally made her a tote bag for all of her toys, dolls, books, and whatever else the girl can fit!

The tote is a good size for any age. I made this one with the traditional shorter handles but long handles can be added. It also has a pocket on the inside and a magnetic snap closure.

The totes in my shop come lined with a fusible interfacing that gives them stability and shape and then I add an additional layer of heavy canvas for extra strength.

I'll be adding a slightly larger tote size to the shop soon in the next couple weeks! Lets face it, we always have WAY too much stuff to 'tote' around!

Love the flower on the bag?? So do I! I purchased this set of felt flowers from Lemon Tree Studio and turned one into a pin! LOVE!
By the way...I think this bag needs a name other than 'tote'....any suggestions!?!

On a side note: I have a serious blogging issue! I just can't seem to keep up with it. That, or the day just isn't long enough!
