crayon tote bag

I made a crayon tote for a coworker, Deb, last year. I was a bit disappointed with how it turned out although she says her grandson uses it all the time. I used this tutorial & when I sewed the handles further apart it made the bag curl if there wasn't anything it it. So then I found this tutorial & added a pocket for the crayons (it holds ten) & put another pocket on to hold snacks or pencils. I embroidered fish on it as Deb wanted fish & mentioned it after I had this fabric picked out. It's kind of wrinkly because it is canvas & I prewashed it and couldn't get those wrinkles ironed out. Next time I'll skip that step. This time I was much happier with the results.
