Although the cotton fabric is fabulous, the bag still whined for some added pizazz, so I utilized some yarn that I had almost forgotten that I owned:
Now, there are no closures on this tote, but I did transform the t-shirt sleeve into an inner pocket! Obviously I used interfacing and lining on the pocket, since jersey fabric is so droopy on its own:

I love this bag. I thought about keeping it for myself, but I decided, instead, to celebrate a recent sale in my Artfire shop by GIVING IT AWAY!!! And, since this contest is all about my adoration of people who support handmade, ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS FOLLOW MY BLOG!!
Just leave a comment between now and Sept. 17th letting me know that you follow and that you want the bag. (I don't want to send it to someone who has no use for it.) I will announce the winner on September 18th.
Goodluck and thanks for following my (mostly) crafty blather!
