Here's another Market Tote Bag from Sweetwater.  This is for a friend of mine who admires animal skin prints..... Like all of us, she lives a busy lifestyle and is constantly on the go so I thought this would be a nice bag for her when she runs around town to do her errands.  The fabric used are canvas and animal printed acrylic with black cotton lining.

I added this hardware to the front to accommodate either a cell phone or iPod holder.  I saw a bag on display at the mall and thought to give it a try. 

For this bag, the label was printed out on fabric and placed in the front.  Seems like it turned out okay.  Very simple:

The front pocket is actually just one peice of fabric (instead of two per the pattern instructions) with a fringe trim and button to give it some dimension.  Can't believe the fringe was in my "sewing stuff" for years.  The receipt that was found attached to it was dated 2005.  EEEEEK!  Gotta empty out those drawers.  There seems to be more and more treasures each time I dig into them.  Here's a photo of the front pocket:

Hope my friend likes will look cute with her new faux cheetah skin sandals!
