Another tote bag done!

Yesterday, I finished the tote for my mom. I think it came out really cute! I really like how the contrast pocket, straps and lining worked out. The one thing I would probably alter in future tote bags is that the lining is a little bit large. I would probably do it a shade smaller than the tote bag, so that it nestled in better. That said, I think I am the only one who would notice.

Here is the inside pocket with my very own label.

Great looking bag! FYI. I typically sew a "slightly" larger seam allowance for the lining (e.g. sides and bottom) to get it to fit inside my bag. :)

Thanks! Yeah, I think that is what I will do next time - 1/8" to 1/4" additional seam allowance really would have made a difference.
