Tropical Tote for Teacher

This was the tote I did for my daughter's teacher.  She loves tropical as much as me and purses too.  It was perfect size for summer wear or beach and as well to hold her other gifts.

I added a pocket to the inside and did a magnetic closure to the top.  Next time I will add purse feet to the bottom to help protect and keep it clean, plus it looks much more finished.  The handles are chocolate brown and braided and attached to a brown wooden ring.  I just love the color combo of this decor fabric.  These are the colors I am going to have in my studio when my husband builds it for me:) 

And again, my logo done in colors to match the purse.

And to make it look all professional and pretty like, I put all the gifts in the purse and wrapped it in cellophane.  I think it looks awesome.

You can see some of the other goodies in there but you will have to come back to see what they actually are. 
I have to say that I was so happy when Shaelyn gave this gift to her teacher.  The look on her face, she had tears, and was just looking at me and shaking her head.  She knows that I can't buy, and have to make everything.  I wanted to do a little extra for her as well and I knew she would like the purse and colors.  She is one of the best teachers we have ever had and my son had her 5 years ago.  We were lucky to get her again.  Next year, we could also get her or her husband.  Either one is awesome.
So if you can, come and visit again soon to see what the gifts were inside. 

Enjoy your day!!!!!
