This is the most awesome pattern. It took me less than an hour to make this tote. What is great about this is you can make it as big or as small as you want. You use them for gift bags instead of the bags you get at the store and it even cost less. It does require one yard of material or just depending on how big you want to make it. What is even better, your receipent can use it on a daily basis. If you are interested go to www.lazygirldesigns.com/blog/?p=913 it is alot of fun.
