This is a nice inspiration and I have seen similar looking totes in the store, so what fun it is to make your own, especially in the size you need! I think I would also sew on the burlap square just to be on the safe side before putting it all together. You could even add another layer or two, each ine a bit smaller than the ine under it, for some added dimension .... Cute project idea!

Wow I love that you can make a shopping style bag without having to sow it. It is so pretty as well, you customise these to suit someones personality and gift it to them!!! Or pop a name onto it as well no one can rob your bag then without you known if it is yours or not)

This is so pretty and easy to make. I am terrible at free handing stuff though so I'm thinking I'm going to have to make a stencil to paint the heart on with. It shouldn't be that hard to do though and this bag is so cute it will be worth the simple extra step. Thanks for making it clear to paint the heart before putting it on the bag. I could have easily been the one to paint it on after and end up with a whoops.

gorgeous and easy to make . love it
