Last night, I was figuring out the bag and measurements to cut. I wanted it big but not so big that she couldn't use it everyday if she chose. When I finished the bag, it came out taller than I had planned. This is what happens when I figure out things in my head and put it on paper. I never know how it's really going to turn out until I am done. Since it's taller than I had planned I make a large flower to accent the front of the bag.
I had some large leftover pieces so I whipped up a zipper pouch to go with the bag for Marty to take home any toiletries she may have. It's not a huge pouch but it'll hold little things and keep them organized.
I don't know if Marty will use this bag after she gets home but I added a zippered pocket and two good size pockets on the inside to hold cell phones or other belongings secure.
I still have a bit more of the gum ball looking fabrics left. I'll have to figure something else to do with it so all the scraps will be used up. I think my simple tote bag is now a bit on the complicated side with the addition of the zippered pocket. I couldn't help myself :-D
