I am so hooked on making tote bags. I see a tote bag in every piece of fabric I lay my eyes on. Someone please help me ... tell me that I'm normal !
My girl friend is a single mother of a 2 year old girl. My girl friend has been using this tote bag she once bought during a trip to Disneyland. That bag is all princess and pink. She loves that bag for practical reasons. It was big enough to carry all her stuffs (& her little girl's) ~ water bottle, snacks, small toy, tissue paper, wallet, coin purse, makeup pouch, handphone, carkeys, etc, etc. Also, that pink princess bag has handles long enough she could carry over her shoulders. But princess and pink just don't go with most of her work clothes and sometimes make her look somewhat weird (like she is refusing to grow up!) when she is alone after she dropped her daughter off at the childcare.
Solution ... I made her this tote bag (using measurements from her pink princess bag). I also used her favorite colors, orange and black!
Surprise! ... I also made an identical one for her daughter :)
Maybe it is ok to be hooked on making tote bags because I am feeling happy :)
