Here is the tote bag I made for Sister 2 for her 20th last week, I made Sister 3 (who is twins with 2) one too but didn't get it photographed. Apparently some of Dos' friends want to give me a bob or two for bags... I could go GLOBAL.
This time I took a bit more time and did french seams and attached the handles on the outside and put ribbon on the ends. Sister 2 is also always losing her keys and phone and everything else so I made her key chain with a clip on it and sewed a ribbon into the top of the bag for easy attachable-ness. I'm basically malcompetent so it is a really simple tote bag but along with other birthday things it seemed like a good idea. Plus when I was in college we used tote bags to transport contraband alcohol hither and yon across campus.
