Friendship Tote

A dear friend of mine will be moving away. Although we had just known each other for a couple of years, JC has been a constant in our life here in San Diego. Another crafty friend of mine and I decided to team up and make something for JC, and we thought a big tote bag would be perfect for her scarfs and hats and mittens that she will need when going out in the Chicago winter, along with all the other stuff a mom needs with her all times!!!


Pattern: Revised from “Simple Tote Bag
Size: 15” x 16”
Completion Date: 09-06-2011

The initials are stitched by my crafty friend, and I put the bag together. I mostly followed the instructions from this simple tote bag, but added a front pocket. I choose a pink lining fabric, which I thought works really well with the front fabric~~


Although I don’t want JC to leave, I know this is for the best, and I wish her all the best in Chicago. I hope when she sees this bag, she will remember us, and all the good days we had here in San Diego~
