The large tote bags available in my shop are so versatile, that I thought I would show you how I use mine. One day it's a beach bag, another a farmers market tote, today it's my catch all handbag. Wanna take a peek?
Here's what I'm carrying today. I'll show you some other versions in coming weeks. My bag is made from a tablecloth that I loved, but was stained. The inside is a plain white cotton, though many of my totes are lined with the waterproof PUL fabric.
Does anyone have experience using one?? Share your thoughts in the comments!
My go-to everyday bag.
Front pocket--tissues, to-do list, lip gloss, lip balm, hair elastic and Star Wars pens. Of course. Don't you have Star Wars pens in YOUR bag???
Fabric for a morning sewing lesson
Package to take to the post office
Hat and gloves
Business card holder
Tin of Mints
First Aid Kit (pretty bird zippered pouch)
More lip balm (it's cold and dry here in the winter!--brown polka dot zippered pouch)
What's inside the small bags inside the big bag?? Take a peek:
I could probably edit this bag. Those Listerine mint things are *awful* (someone gave them to me). The pink ball is an EOS lip balm. Told ya it was dry here in the winter. And I probably only need one tin of mints in my whole bag.
First Aid Kit: Again, could stand to be edited. The white box is band aids and Neosporin. There are some allergy eye drops, more band aids, alcohol wipes, emergency toothbrushes (disposable, I know, but again, someone gave them to me), and the obligatory candy bribes for really bad tumbles or a marathon list of errands to slog through. Why so many band aids? I did mention I have a 5 year old boy, didn't I?
Knitters are the best! I knit badly, but I love to sew lovely bags to keep their projects, needles and hooks in order. I also teach sewing, and you can find many sewing resources here. Welcome to my blog Dancing Threads RI.
