This is the work of a great mind. Simple,easy and cute. I love that you use a tote you already have which is recycling and make it to fold up for the convenience of putting in your purse and taking out when you need it. And to use handkerchiefs for the pockets to tuck into is so convenient so no sewing pockets. Great tutorial. Anyone make one for Mother's Day?

I like this idea. Smart and simple...

This is such a convenient bag! It's perfect for folding up and sticking in your purse if you have a shopping trip planned. It seems very roomy.
