New Tote Bag!

This is the recent tote bag I made and by recent I mean Sunday morning from midnight to 3am!! 
It's a gift for my niece, she's turning 1.  Well actually she turned 1 on Sunday, but her party is this weekend.
Well it's basically gonna be the "gift bag" for all the other stuff I made her (a quilt, shadowbox w/name & embellishments).  Plus, her mom can use it to carry all of her other items in, instead of the big bulky diaper bag. I guess my sister in law can use is for herself as well! lol!

These are the fabrics I used.

For the outside and inside pocket I added a black and white polka dot lining

The lining on the inside is this soft purple print.

Since I don't throw anything away, I used the scraps to make the multi-colored rosettes for the outside pocket.

There you have it!!  Sorry I didn't take any pics of me making it....I was in a hurry to get it done.  Her birthday party is this weekend and since I'm the queen of procrastination...I waited till the last minute!

It was just a simple basic tote bag.  If you've ever made one you know their really simple to make.  4 pieces for the bag, 4 pieces for the pockets, 2 pieces for the handles.... and zippers or velcro if you want!  I didn't have any zips or velcro since I was in a time crunch.    For sure my next bag will have zips and I will take pics.
