A book jam packed full
of totes for all different kids
of occasion.

There are eight different bags
for you to choose from and
I can honestly say that none of the
totes are anything like the others.

Each design is very unique and ideal
for the use it was designed for.

I love the way that Nicoletta brings
together different colours of yarn
as well as different techniques
to create beautiful totes.

The caffe latte tote is ideal for everyday use.
it's nice and bid to handle what you need to carry.
I love the use of the two yarns to create
a unique look that gives an amazing effect.
It looks sturdy and ideal for using time
and again.

If you are unsure about any of the techniques
in the book that are used, you don't have to worry.
Leisure Arts have online videos to help you
to follow them.

The Sunny Days Tote is beautiful
I love the colourful stylish design.
You could make one to match
the colours you usually wear.

The Terra Cotta Tote
is a lovely squares repeating design
that looks very stylish.

The Tueill Weave Tote
looks fantastic.
This would be brilliant to use going
round the market or taking
to the beach.

The Sublime Stripes Shoulder Bag
is the favorite to me.  I love the bright
colours that are contrasted with the
dark brown.
I also love the shoulder bag as it's
easier for me to use.
It's a lovely big size so can be used
daily or on picnics or visits to the beach.
This bag just has so many uses.

The Aravesque Clutch really
brings together style with practicality.
The black and white gives such an
elegant and classic design.
The use of embroidery crochet is fantastic.
It's so effective and stunning.

The All-Day Shoulder Bag
is a beautiful design that is made to use
all the time.
It's ideal for anyone of any age and
would make a brilliant gift for someone.

The Shabby Rose Tote
brings together a practical and useful
bag with a pretty rose design.
It just shows that not everything needs
to be 2-D and the 3-D roses really
do make an impact.

Leisure Arts really do have
the knack for putting together amazing crafting books.
This book doesn't let their collection down.
It's a brilliant mix of totes
that I am sure you'll want to make.
