I love this totebag! It uses elastics for handles which is really cute and easy to put over a doll's shoulder. It's big enough to use for an overnight bag or a beach bag or a play date. My GD was delighted to "design" the charm to attach to the front - lots of options there and a chance for little humans to show their creativity. If you only make one tote bag, this is the one to make. Grab 'N Go Tote Bag by peppermintsticks. And it's only $3.99.
Made it for my two granddaughters. Easy to make. They love their tote bag.
Good pattern. Easy to use!
