Adorable Hand Bags

A lady in our church has started having a Lady's Bible Study and Craft Time once a month.  I went this past Friday, and it was so nice to get together with all the Lady's and have some adult time and a small Bible Study.  The craft we made was this adorable tote bag.  If you are interested, the tutorial is here.  The only thing I did differently was I made the handles 11 inches.  This left enough ribbon to make a nice bow.  I also just stitched down the side seam allowances.  I felt like it gave it more of a finished look.  After  I made the first one, I just had to go get more supplies to make my daughter, nieces and sister one.  I need to make 3 more, but they are so easy and cute I can't wait to get them done.  Plus they only take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete!  This green polka-dot bag was the first one I made.
I decided to go with the loepoard print for my sister.  The black shiny button really dresses things up, doesn't it?  I may need to duplicate this one for my mom.  I still haven't decided what to make for my other sister, but she's in boot camp right now, so I have a few weeks to get it done!

And of course, since my daughter's favorite colors are yellow and blue, this little cutie is just for her.  I just love the flower buttons on the bow!
