This is a tote I just finished for a friend to give to her friend for Christmas. She had ask me to make it right after I made mine back in the late winter. I sure hope she likes it. I used an interfacing in this one to give it a little more body. Mine is fairly limp but does a good job for me. The design in the stitching is mine, but my daughter Terry helped me arrange the items. I had fun picking out the buttons because I love buttons very much and use them on everything I can.

This is a closer view of the stitching.
