Another Monogrammed Tote

My fellow small group leader Terri is also having her birthday this month so I thought I'd surprise her and make a tote for her too!
I used a dark aqua Dupioni silk for the "T" and hand appliqued it on.
Then I hand sewed 3 different sized yo-yo's in aqua and yellow with buttons in green, yellow, and aqua. I tied a yellow organza ribbon in a bow on one of the handles. I hope she loves her tote too.

Very cute! At one time when needing birthday gifts for kids parties, I would decorate a tote and put a gift in it in lieu of wrapping paper. The canvas totes aren't that more expensive than the paper bags.
Thanks for your comment on the moderation emails. I looked at those settings a dozen times. I put in an invalid email address for notification. The first part was correct but the wrong provider. DUH!!!
