this is a super-easy tote bag to make (pattern found here)--perfect for grocery shopping or library visiting. here we are outside our local library after signing up for the Summer Reading Club.
i was a Children's Librarian in my previous life and spent countless hours organizing, promoting, and just doing the Summer Reading Program at my various libraries. so when i had kids, that was one of the first things i wanted to do with them! check out your library to see if they have a Summer Reading Program--they usually have prizes--free books for kids--woo-hoo!
