This tote was so much fun to make. The pattern is McCalls #5598. The rose and leaves, I had to figure out on my own. I had to come up with a pattern for them.
The "Doodle Diary" is a sketchbook I bought from Barnes and Noble. It's just like mine except mine's not cute. I like it because the pages are thicker so the pens don't bleed through as much. I removed the front and back covers and painted them white. The papers and most of the embellishments are "Little Yellow Bicycle". Anyways, isn't it amazing how many times I can use some form of the word "doodle" in one post.
