I like to combination of the fabrics, although I wish there was more red in the one.
Anyways, you can customize the front pockets to fit whatever "tools" you might want to carry, and there is a little pocket inside.
All in all, I like this tote. I have carried it all weekend, and it has come in quite handy.
I did have a small issue while I was sewing it. Since the fabric was thicker than I have been using, the tension was a little off, resulting in squiggly stitching.
I got around to adjusting it when I was attaching the last handle. Always the procrastinator.
We hit a awesome estate sale this past week, at a $3 million estate. This house was beyond incredible. Seven rooms, eight and a half baths. I think we counted 6 washer/dryers. The master suite alone was bigger than our house, and the master shower alone was bigger than our one bathroom. It was the single most amazing house I have ever been to. We had to wait in line for 45 minutes to get in, but the house alone was worth the wait.
I didn't leave empty handed, either. I got Caleb a couple of books for Christmas the first trip. Yes, I said first trip. We went back for the last day, 50% off day. Not that there was much left to mark down. They cleaned up at this sale. I did manage to find a couple of pieces of fabric I got for $2. I think this piece of brocade alone was worth a couple of times that.
It was surprising hard to photograph. Totally not doing it justice. It is really beautiful.
I can't wait to see what it is going to become!
