Christmas item no 1

My first Christmas make is this tote bag.I used an embroidery from Tis the Season,but made the bag up as I went along. The outside of the bag is Christmas fabric,the inside I like to use calico as its a bit stronger. Very simple bag,you make the inside longer than the outside so you can turn it over at the top.Stitch round top,sew on the handles .very easy. I also know whose getting this one,may make a couple more during the year.
