Feathery Caravan tote

My first finish for the Q2 finish-along is a tote bag that was gifted to a good friend as a farewell gift from work. 
The pattern is the Caravan tote by Anna @ Noodlehead designs and as usual, Anna's instructions were very clear and easy to follow.
I used a pretty feathery drill for the main bag panel, along with my favourite 7 oz black denim for the top of the tote and the handles.
The only tricky part of this was avoiding  breaking my needle on the metal parts of the zipper!
The pattern includes directions for making a divided pocket to keep knitting needles and crochet hooks in which is such a great idea for a crafty person such as my friend.

I really love this feathers print and have enough of this fabric left to make another one of these totes for me:)
