My New Tote :)

I won this lovely tote from Char Spirit Creations. Isn't it cute? It's a reversible pocket tote. What's the inside in this picture features the fabric that you see in the pocket as I have it laid out. Then it has a pocket of the plain black fabric. I like using it this way because it's still bright and fun, but not quite as "in your face" as having the main fabric being the rainbow peace signs would be. Who knows? That's my mood right now, I may change my mind on different occasions :P

Not only is this tote reversible, it folds up into the pocket, and so it stores really easily! Perfect for someone who doesn't have a lot of space. Which I don't. Also, what you can't see in this picture is that the strap ties, so you can adjust it to be as long or short as you want. It's actually long enough for me to sling cross-body, and I'm not a small woman!

Now when I first got this in the mail a couple of days ago I didn't know what I was going to do with it. After all, I already have a designated craft bag, and a library tote, so I didn't know what purpose I was going to put this new tote to. I tossed it in the closet and figured that I'd come up with something before long. It's too cute to pass up after all!

Then, last night, I ended up using the tote and it was PERFECT. You see, we lost all water pressure in our apartment, which meant no using the bathroom, and it was too late for the repair guy to come out and look at it. You DON'T tell me I can't use the bathroom! It just does not work well. So we decided at 10 o'clock last night that I was spending the night at my parents house.

What did I use the tote for? Packing of course! I put my pjs, books, crochet project, and some meds in there! Plus some bathroom stuff fit perfectly in the pocket :) In the picture at the top it's still stuffed full from my short trip to my parents, and as you can see, it all fit perfectly! Thanks Char!

Oh yes, we have water pressure again.

So happy you found a good cause (overnighter) for the tote! Hope it gives you many years of toting your stuff around! :)
