In my opinion, one can never have too many tote bags! They're great to take to the grocery store, farmers market, flea market, the library, a day at the beach, a quick trip to the mall, and they will save a bunch of plastic bags going into the trash. Here is one of the prettiest tote bag tutorials I've seen. I'm loving the mix of Kate Spain charms and gathered fabric! The tute can be found at My Patchwork and it's well worth making. The instructions are very well explained, with lots of photos, and the project is actually easier than the end results look, so even a beginner can succeed with this bag!
