The Library Tote....
This is my latest creation. I am calling it the Library Tote...the way the strap cinches through the loop reminds me of the images of book straps from some of my childhood story books. It works well as a casual day purse also...I know because I made one for myself and I like it so much I couldn't wait for a trip to the library to begin filling it up.
So...with Luke's upcoming entry into preschool I am pacifying my nerves by coming up with the perfect little tote bag for him to bring his stuff to school in. I am pretty sure it will be a smaller version of the Library tote...but I'd like him to have a little say. Today we will journey to the fabric store so he can choose just the fabric he wants for his new bag. The first day of school is tomorrow so today is the day I really need to keep my hands and mind busy. I intentionally saved this project 'till the last day knowing I would feel this way! I'll report back on the finished bag soon.This is a photo taken on Mothers Day of my boys and their cousin Chasity. This is the only 'good' one out of about 50 attempts.
