Isn't this a wonderfully pretty, cheery bag? Handmade in Japan by Rina of Chic36, this Big Flower Tote is available at Crafters For Critters and is only $30 - with 100% going to a very good cause.
While there is no size information available, it looks more than large enough to hold all your daily essentials - in fact, possibly your purse itself - as well as perhaps your camera, a good book or magazine, a bottle of water or fruit juice, your knitting or embroidery gear to work, the doctor's office, the baseball game (don't forget, Stitch 'N Pitch is now underway), the beach, or a day downtown. That's one thing I love about a good, sleek tote - it will stylishly hold everything you need in one neat package. No need to carry two bags, or a handbag and a pile of other necessaries. As an amateur photographer who brings her small camera everywhere with her, I find a good tote is indispensable, as it negates the need to put something on the ground to shoot.
The colours on this bag are so pretty, and that there are several colours in a large, modern flower print means it will coordinate wonderfully with your wardrobe.
Keep in mind, this fab tote is available only at Crafters For Critters. CFC is given donations from independent crafters and artists, sells the items via the webstore, and uses all the proceeds to help animals. The charities change every 'round' (there are three rounds a year), but they're always listed on CFC's info page. Great idea, isn't it? Crafters are usually really kind, generous people, and this fits in perfectly with the sort of thing they like to do. At Crafters For Critters, you'll find everything from pet toys (of course!), accessories, clothing, jewelry, craft kits, stationery, and every penny after shipping costs and the occasional infusion to keep the website up and running goes to the round's selected charities: they raised over $3100 last round, over $1700 the one previous to that - they list the amount raised after each round. Enjoy your browsing, and when you make your purchase, know you're doing so and supporting a great cause at the same time.
