This is a lovely tote bag with great personality. Using grommets for the straps to pull through then tie to secure is a nice idea rather than simply stitching the ends to the tote. I like the parallel running stitches in the strap handles helps to strengthen the handles as well as a design element.

I love your site. Thank you for being there!!
