Tote Bags

Do you guys love tote bags? Cause I pretty much do. They have SO many uses. And for those of us that like to carry around our life in a bag, much like Marry Poppins, these things come in handy! So...you know. I just took some leftover fabric from some furniture redo's, along with some old clothes (my dress that was too short, clay's shirt that was too small-both in great condish) and WALA! Tote bags!

I incorporated a "Cell Phone Pocket". It pretty much fits my htc DROID perfectly. Or it could fit a pack of gum perfectly...or Altoids...or a tape measure. Yeah...I tend to carry around tape measures in my purse!


They are also the PERFECT size for books. So...take this little tote on to school, church, work- it fits notebooks, documents, most anything you'd need!

Can you tell I'm addicted to polka-dots? I blame my mother:) (She too, is addicted to polka-dots)


They have ZERO exposed seams, are sewn sturdy so the handles hang on tight, and the straps are totally comfy and heavy duty. They're pretty much legit.

I love them! I'm pretty sure I am addicted to making TOTES now. Probably within a week here I'm planning on setting up SHOP! Yep, I'm gonna start sellin stuff:) So...keep an eye out for these handy totes available for sale!

love, love, love the totes! I had to force myself to get rid of some the other day and didn't succeed very well! I still have the one you gave me that has polka dots, it is my church bag, another for weight watchers, another for when I go to the greenhouse, and another for my clothes that I change into for the greenhouse. Then I kept a couple more cause you know I just might need one. Oh yea, the grandkid church bag. Yep you're right Totes are a necessity!!! love you!!!
