Tote-ally Fabulous

Morning folks...back to share with you the big reveal of the tote I made at Anne's amazing workshop....I have tote-ally fallen in love with my tote-ally  fabulous tote.....


5 very roomy outer pockets for all those things that us girls need to carry with us and a huge inner pocket for your purse and valuables...or perfect for holding all your crafty essentials if you are out and about
 don't you just love the fabulous big buttons available from Simply Create
 just a little added decoration.....made with TH fragments and alpha rub-ons...just so everyone knows IT'S MINE

I am taking this little beauty with me to the SECC and I know it will be greatly admired....everyone is going to want one....but what I really need now is this very clever lady to come up with a pattern for matching slippers and then I will be the belle of the ball.  Catch up with you all tomorrow and I may just take my very chic tote for it's first outing....a quick trip to my local M&S Food Store and pick up something tasty for lunch.
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add:  apologies for misleading anyone in the previous post about my tote....the fabric is not in fact Cath Kidson....and I have just got the heads up from Anne....it's Holly Holderman "Rose-in-a-Round Again"...and for all those who asked about the charms on yesterday's wedding card.....sorry folks bought them ages ago and I mean years and years ago at a Hobbycraft show at the SECC and I have no idea who from.
