"Leo" Super tote

Ok, so we are in December now and I have only just finished my mum's birthday bag using the fabulous Super Tote pattern by Anna @ Noodlehead.
Her starsign is "Leo" so that is an indication of how late this birthday present is!!!
But I so wanted to use some Cotton and Steel "August" prints for her bag and had to wait until my order for these beautiful fabrics came in.
I used the Hide & Seek in Green for the pocket along with the Diamondback in Teal for the front of the tote.
And teamed the August "Lion"  with some Cloud 9 organic Koi waves smiles in plum for the back and the recessed zipper panels.
This bag is quite deep so I lined the bag with a natural seeded cotton homespun so it is easier to see down to the bottom of it.
Hoping she enjoys using this belated birthday pressie!

And this project was also on my Q4 FAL list with the Finish - along hosted by Katy @ The Littlest Thistle.
