I realised a long time ago that making my own bags meant that I could have as many as I liked without breaking the bank. Sadly the same doesn't apply to shoes! This Colorful Canvas Tote is really nice and a must have for me. Teresa, the bag blogger, says she's not sure why she used the metal clips on the strap instead of just sewing the strap on to the bag. I quite like the clips - it breaks up the total fabric look.
