Sew Cute Tote

Happy Monday Friends
I've had a busy weekend.  How was yours?
Jacob is going to be a little sun lover.  We've spent all weekend outside in the sun.
It is so good to see the sun again. I feel like a cat and just want to curl up in bask in the warmth and snooze for hours.  Ha, I'm dreaming again.  Does anybody out there with a toddler get to do this anymore?  If you do please share with me your secret of getting that time alone.  I can't remember the last time I got to pee alone, lol.  Oh well, I'm still living the dream!
However, this week during nap time I have been working on a cute little bag. 
Let me know what you think.  I love making stuff like this.  I love to upcycle things.  When I'm shopping I browse for things that have some basic fabric or colors that I like, then restyle them to create something totally different than what it started out to be and add a touch of myself. 
I like to play with denim a lot and that is my usual fabric of choice but I this little fabric caught my eye and I just had to see what I could do with it.

To create this little tote I also purchased bamboo handles and covered them with matching colored ribbon.  I found these adorable buttons at Joann's, as you can see there are a pair of scissors, needle and thread and a thimble that I've added.  I love the added eyelet ruffles on the front.
This is just a little tote or purse or whatever, I just enjoyed putting it together. 
Hope you like it.
