    Here's a little kids' tote that I whipped up tonight. It was so super easy. I just used two FQ's and some yarn for the straps. I will use ribbon next time to make it a little more sturdy. But its big enough for a kiddo to tote stuff around with them!

    This is great! My son gets this type of bag when he goes to camp, but they are made from a less sturdy material. He loves them, though. I should definitely try something like this!

    It was so super easy, if you want I can write a quick tutorial, or you can figure it out yourself, it's so easy!

    Here's the quick tutorial I promised.

    Start with two fQ's. Place right sides together and trim so that all edges are flush and match. Press. Sew all the way around with a 1/4'' seam, leaving a small opening on one side for turning.

    Turn right side out and press all seams. Close up turning opening by top stitching.

    Fold over the 18'' edge by 1/4'', press. Fold over again 1/2'' to form a casing. Press, and then top stitch into place.

    Cut a length of ribbon 52'' long (just right for kiddos, but if you want it longer, that's fine too.) Attach a safety pin to one end, and work the length of ribbon through the casing you just made. Remove safety pin and even out ribbon ends.

    Sew down the 21'' edge, with patterned sides together. Make sure to keep the ribbon out of the stitching!

    Attach the ribbon ends to each open end at the bottom. Sew bottom closed.

    Turn right side out and press.
