The tote bag that I finished today is a little bizarre in that there is a plethora of decoration on it. Having said that some of it is functional e.g. the triangles at the ends of the zips and some of it is just a bit of fun. It is certainly capacious but if I made it again I would make some changes to it. It is similar to my Steph bag but the faux leather is very different to work with and I’m not sure I like it as it is much more unforgiving that fabric.
