Love Totes for my Cherubs

I wanted to write this about 3 weeks ago but I had a little incident and my Sciatic Nerve got in the way.  So sitting was out of the scope for awhile, but I am feeling so much better!!

I want to share these Valentine Totes I made for my Granddaughters, along with the Goodies I made and filled them with.  I had so much fun and it really brought back memories of days long ago.
I made them each a little different with the size and the Trim. I put Pockets on each side of the outside,
and one on each side of the inside.  These Girls love pockets in their Handbags and Totes.
For Johanna, I made Stacked Hairbows, Headbands, Pony Holders and sewed embellishments on fluffy footies.  I found some Heart decorated Band aids, and a Hello Kitty Pez Key Chain, and finished it off with some Conversation Hearts Candy, and a little Chocolate.
For Audra it was pretty much the same with the exception of the Footies(she won't wear them), and I found a Baby Hello Kitty Pez Key Chain.
I also made them a Crocheted Heart Necklace to pack in a Pocket.
After I packed them up, I felt they still needed a little something more so I embellished a couple of Wands, that I think I picked up at Michael's awhile back.  Now they looked complete, so off I went to deliver them.
Johanna on the left and Audra on the right, didn't take much time pulling out each goodie, and checking out what the other had.
Ooohs and Aaahs.....

and Foil wrapped Chocolate Coins...  I think they liked their Valentine Tote Bags that Mimmie made.....

Have a Great Day Friends!!
Huggs, Nancy
