Holiday tote giveaway!

After hauling packages to the post office fairly consistently over the last few weeks, I decided I needed something durable and holiday-inspired to carry them around. Meet: the holiday tote. Black cotton exterior, sparkly plaid interior, long handles, pockets, and it’s machine washable.

Made by me: Inspired by

I saw this Zara cape on my friend Christine’s blog last week and fell in love. So in love in fact, that I decided to make one for myself. The idea is simple, but it can seriously transform an outfit.

And then by the time I finished sewing it, common sense kicked in and I realized that I would be much better off (financially speaking) if I tried to sell this. I mean I can always make one for myself, right? See it for sale on Etsy here.
