Library Tote

I made Jane a simple tote for her library books adapted from an idea I saw here. I was originally going to embroider the bag, but I don't have a thimble and, yipes, would those be some sore thumbs when I was done with that one. Then I saw Cindy's post and changed my mind. I wanted the letters to be in the middle of the bag, though, so I used heavy duty Heat n' Bond and skipped the machine sewing. We've been using it for a month or so and the letters are still going strong without peeling off. The only problem is that Jane will only carry a bag (any sort of bag) that weighs over a few ounces for about twelve seconds before I end up carrying it. So I know you were picturing her, all cute, skipping along and toting her bookbag, but you were'd have to picture me, toting purse, baby, diaper bag, and library tote while Jane runs off in the wrong direction toting nothing. We'll work on that.
