Tote Bag

I posted earlier in the week that I was going to make a gift for a friend's birthday. I chose to make her a tote bag. I have never done a sewing project like this before, and I I think it turned out pretty good for a first time. Especially since I didn't use a pattern. I made the tote with a heavy canvas like material with a flannel lining. I added applique and ribbon accenting. I ragged the handles because it was much easier than trying to turn the pieces inside out.

I thought something practical would be nice, since we just had Christmas. It has her first initial to make it her own.
I thought it would be nice to use to take to the pool, or a overnight stay at Grandma's house.
