raffle tote

i made this tote bag for a united way raffle at work--and it turned out pretty cute, so i was really happy with it! due to many very nice compliments from work friends, i'm planning on making some for elisa's holiday boutique now too.

the tote bag had a medium-weight canvas exterior with a patterned cotton lining. i topstitched the handles and bag opening with coordinating aqua thread, and embroidered with a lighter aqua embroidery floss. i also screenprinted on the front AND the interior pocket has a surprise guy peeking out of it!

it ended up being the perfect size to fit some reading materials and a snack, or your newest knitting/crocheting project, yay :)
