    I love making totes. I made a bunch for Christmas presents, embroidered different Christmas designs on them. They were a big hit. This year I made several “baskets”. Another big hit. Getting ready to make my own conceal carry purse. Can’t find one in the color I want. Love having the versatility to put as many pockets in a purse or tote as I want.
