Kylie's tote

This evening I finished this tote bag as a gift for Kylie while we are on vacation. I actually did the needlepoint a few years ago but never completed it because I couldn't find buttons I liked. I found these last year but still didn't sew the bag because I wasn't sure how to do it with canvas pockets. Last Friday I was looking at Home Sewn by French General and it had the exact bag I wanted to make. I was able to finish it in less than two hours. I have the supplies to make one for Abbie also but I need to finish stitching the background  on the canvas. I should have it done by tomorrow night. I used denim for the outside and fabric left over from the girls quilts to line the inside. I am very happy with the way it turned out. I just might make one for myself later this summer. I have a couple pieces already stitched that would look cute made into a bag.

It adorable, but what about Lilie?

I love the buttons that you used.
