Secret tote Swap – completed tote. . .

I really enjoyed participating in this swap, seeing the fabric selections all the way to enjoying the creativity of so many in the secret Tote Swap Flickr group that Lia of Lia*s Handmades created.  I was a little worried, first swap, first tote – but I think it turned out OK.
