The "Its So easy its Scary!!!"....Tote Tutorial

Here's what Chasity said about her tutorial: ~Trick or Treat! We have been pretend trick or treating all week long. This is the first year that Burger seems more excited about trick or treating than he does scared of it. So I decided to make him a treat tote since I had this kooky Frankenstein family fabric that he was digging.( we are knee deep in Halloween library books 'round here and burger is loving all the characters that he is discovering.

...I found the owl fabric tucked away in my scrap stash and there you go everything we needed.

~It was such a super quick and easy project,( I did it all in less than one hour) so I thought I would make another to share as a tutorial. This one I made as a fall tote for myself with longer straps.

...I used a pretty vintage table cloth adorned with some of my favorite fall veggies for my outer shell. This is a great project to show case some pretty scraps like this table cloth( that may have some extra wear on them).
