As promised, here are the photos of Austy's new tote. It's taller than I was going to make it as I didn't want to chop asny cats heads off in the lining fabric and wanted to be sure the handle stitching stayed well clear of the applique on the back. I originally planned a bordered panel of the three pictures on the back but couldn't find a fabric that would not detract from the illustrations and went with each one, so instead decided on this placement, directly on the denim.
It works as a childcare bag during the week, fitting a couple of disposables (home nappies) in the pocket, spare clothes in the main and milk sippy cup in the front pocket, and then on weekends works beautifully as a toy tote, holding a couple of cloth nappies and wipes in the bottom, and that internal pocket holds two Linley Dodd books just perfectly.
Here's a detail shot of the internal pocket.
