A Tote is a Tote

So I've made a couple of totes and I want to share, of course! =)

The first one I made to take with me to camp - see here to read about camp.

It was the perfect size to carry the items I needed around without being too much and it was cute too!

This next one will be for sale in the Etsy shop if someone local doesn't scoop it up. ;P

It is just a bit bigger and has wider shoulder straps. It also has two pockets on the inside. I'm experimenting with what size I like most and what to embellish it with. The first one I made 2 yo-yo's and sewed them together with a little button and the second one I added a ruffle (the first ruffle I've ever attempted to make - woohoo).

I think I like totes! They are just so practical. I'm going to continue to experiment with different sizes and embellishments and will of course share them here.

I'm off of work next week - I have lots of plans on the to-do list. Of course, I'm going to be doing some sewing. I have plans of finishing up some inventory and finally opening the Etsy shop. You'll be the first to know. I can't wait!

Well, I need to finish this up stat because it's thundering and lightening here - you know I love storms but I don't want to be attached to the computer while it's happening - safety first! ;)

Hope you have had a glorious Friday!
