Fruity shopping tote with key clip

What are you most proud of? Using up fabric from my stash. I centered two different fruit motifs on each side of the bag. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy the process. I always consider my first sewn items as a prototype, and don't expect them to be perfect. I will improve and adapt after I have tested the pattern or technique. This tote came out fine on the first try, and I might even whip up a few more this week!

Q&A with ShereeSews

MarieMcC asked:
Wow, that's BEAUTIFUL! Great fabric choices. The bag on the class promo is so ugly, I didn't want to make it, but after seeing yours, I'll have to give that pattern another look. Great job!
ShereeSews answered:
Fabric choices and colors are always my first decision! Thanks for the kind thoughts!
