when my mom saw the first tote, she wanted one. so the baby tote is made from the scraps of the 2 bags, i just had to buy a small amount of red for the upper body. because it is from scraps, the straps are the most different. i wish i had enough of the black, white and red for the underside of the baby tote straps. but i am pleased with it, no matter what. i have enough of the black and white for another small bag, but now i am looking for a different lining to create another look. you may want to check back to see the next tote creation.

Tote Bag Family
well, i finally made a second tote. i made the first to use for work, but it was a little too big. so i decided to cut the pattern down to make a smaller one. i thought i would have a baby tote, but the second is the perfect size, so i think the first is really the granddaddy of totes. you can see the catalog in the large tote, to see how big it really is.
next is a side view, to see how big the side pockets are. the large holds a water bottle in its side pockets, the small holds my phone and i put plasticware in there too for my lunch at work.
