A tote just for me

I've spent my 'me' time over the last few weeks making this tote. I bought Anna Maria Horner's multi-tasker tote pattern right before Eliza was born. It was an impulse buy and I didn't think I would get to it, but I am finding I am more focused during my craft time now. Maybe I am more aware that my time to create is a gift so I've been using it wisely? Who knows...but I truly enjoyed making something just for me!

This was really fun to make and it kinda comes together like magic. This was my first time using an Anna Maria Horner pattern and the instructions were fantastic. Now that it is finished though I am worried it is too funky. I wanted to make something bright and contrasting, but is it too much? What do you think?

I love it! Very cool.

Michael has totally echoes the sentiments that you just expressed about time being more focused after we had Eleanor. Somehow you just become more efficient with time and he thinks he's been more productive. which is great! It is amazing how fast the time goes when they are napping though - too fast!

Not too funky at all. I would carry it for sure. Are those pockets on the side?
