Views of my freshly made tote bag!

Using a hip-to-piece tutorial for help, I made a lined brown tote bag with my own button design  on the front.  I raided my family button jar for true vintage buttons--you can't find ones like those at Walmart!  :)  I finished up the bag today and am very proud of it--I am a beginner at sewing, and am enjoying the benefits of wearing homeade things! Hope you enjoy the pics and try it yourself!  Its a great weekend project!
