This Christmas I gifted two canvas tote bags.  They're a nice large size and can be used for just about anything.  Each one I make is one-of-a-kind, so I have a great time playing with fabrics and trims to make them extra special.
This one I made for my daughter to replace the very first one I made for her back in 2014.  I noticed how worn it was and decided it was time for a new one.  I'll have to tell you she's suffering from separation anxiety switching over to this new one, but in time I think she'll be able to let go. 
The totes I make for her I use heat transfer vinyl to add her business logo to it.   I cut it out using my silhouette machine and use an iron to adhere it to the canvas.   I also added a second interior pocket this year; the perfect size for her cell phone.  She loves using them for her client meetings, and when she's not heading to a meeting, she uses it to transport her laptop everywhere she goes!

The second tote I made for a special friend of ours.  I love finding fabrics that work well together, and add some personality to the piece as well!
 Here's a view of the interior pockets......I already received a thank you telling me how much she loves it!
Once I get them cut out, I usually can't stop sewing them since I'm so anxious to see them come together!  I'm thinking it's about time I made one for myself!!
