Spring Garden Tote

By:

This beautiful garden tote comes to us as a guest project from Dorinda at Flower Girl Designs Collection.

I love to garden and I needed a tote to carry my gardening supplies. I started this pattern a few months ago, when I started thinking about Spring and I just finished it. I think this would be a great Mother's Day gift for the mom that loves to garden. You could also fill it up with some gardening supplies. It is fun and easy to sew. Enjoy!
