My husband & I are going to New Orleans next month to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, which also falls on Father's Day. I wanted either a purse or a tote that was bright & cheery to take along so I went through my stash & found these 2 fabrics. The tote is the Candice tote by Lazy Girl designs.

I'm very happy with how this turned out. …Continue
