Two Totes

TWO TOTES

I love totes
I use totes 
I keep several in my car at all times,
and use them in all stores, not just for food.
My market a block away
fondly refers to me as the bag lady,
 and I get 4 extra points 
each visit even if I only use two totes.
They like my totes.
I've been sewing, selling, and giving totes
as gifts for many years.

A few days ago, needing therapy,
 I decided to hang in the studio, 
sewing up some of the mountains of
home dec fabric I have saved.
High quality favorites, hoarded for years,
 saving the "good stuff" for me;
but really, how much fabric can 
I save for later?
Apparently a lot, so many totes to come.


The totes are reversible, ultra sturdy,
and hold an enormous amount of product.
 The handles are reinforced to hold weight. 
Each is approximately 17"x15"
with a 12" handle drop for comfort.
