Tote Bags for Summer

New Totes Bags for Summer!!!!
These are the perfect size bag (13"X 13" X 3") to throw your summer essentials in before hitting the beach or the pool!  I use mine to carry my son's snack/ drink/ wipes/ water bottle/ headphones to the gym or to the park for a play date.  Or these could totally be used as grocery totes.  I will soon post my newer bags that are much bigger-20" X 16" X 5" that could hold even more things!  Stay tuned...

 These bags are machine washable as well!  We have had ours for a couple of years now and it is still our old standby bag.  They are only $24 and can be personalized with a name or monogram as well.

New Tote Bags

I just filled a large order of tote bags for someone to give as baby presents and here are a few examples!  Sorry for the overexposed photos, but you get the idea!  Below are two "chicks on sticks" in two shades of pink.
The turquoise lab tote is oh so cute for  a little boy!
Here are two "zoo" totes, an elephant and a giraffe.  Painted  in any color, they would be perfect for boys or girls!
Now these are adorable with the monogram added on the left.  (You could always add it in the center of the image as well.)  It is hard to see, but these are light pink chicks on sticks.
