Tote Bags

Everyday I carry a tote bag to work with additional items; I guess you could say I use it like a briefcase.  Anytime I get a new purse, I make a new tote bag to match the purse.  I had some extra fabric from a current project that I am working on and it just so happens that the fabric matches my new purse.  Don't you just love it when that kind of thing happens! I do!!

 Remember the trim from the lampshade at my Mom's?
I had to have some for this tote bag!
Even made a rossette! One of my best! :)
After all of the black tote bags I made, I had an extra one.  
I went ahead and made it up for one of my friends.

Love that tote. Kinda reminds me of the placemat purses I have been making lately (you can check them out at sandysewz.blogspot.com) That trim adds a really nice touch to it.

Very cool bag! I love your combination of trims and fabrics, you are so creative. And the big K on the black pillow is adorable, especially with the big flower.
