Banchero Friends Services, an advocate organization for adults with developmental disabilities, holds a charitable auction every year to raise money for the amazing work that they do. This year I decided to donate six handmade tote bags for the auction. You can learn more about Banchero here.
Each bag is appliqued with a tree (the Banchero logo is a tree). They are all made of canvas and fully lined.
It took a few weekends and lots of help from my husband/sweatshop supervisor, but they are all ready to go and I think they turned out awesome. My favorite is the one with the pink and green leaves. It was supposed to just be the "test" bag to make sure the size was right and everything worked, but it turned out so well that it made it into the final six.
