Blog Conference Tote Bag

You all gave me permission to make myself a new bag for the Creative Estates blogging conference.  But, I may have gone just a little overboard! 🙂I found this gorgeous fabric at Wal-mart- yes you read that right, Wal-mart!!  And since it was not all that expensive I bought both color-ways of the canvas and both accent fabrics as well.  So, I made my bag- extra large since it costs money to check luggage now days and I wanted to have…
