I decided to make a Granny Square for one panel of the tote bag, in pretty colours which my partner likes,
And then did a rainbowy AMH feather on the other side, which looks very bright and colourful against the dark grey cotton/linen blend which I used for the main fabric.
This is the first time I have used these new leather "gemini stitches" labels which I bought after seeing them on the Bijou Lovely blog - my partner can always remove it if she wishes to reverse the bag.
And the matching key fob is made so that it can be worn over her wrist if needed - I have one like this for my car and house keys and I love it! It keeps your hands free and you are less likely to lose or drop your keys.
