Each weekday morning, Head Baby and I trek 2 doors down to my house; where she tells me what to do for the next few hours. Much of what I was being made to do consisted of going back and forth, from my house to her house; scavenging for important things that she couldn’t be without.

(Such as one of her brothers shoes, a Popsicle, the tv remote…you get the idea.)

The outside is an owl print. I was terrified my niece would demand a piece of my vintage or designer fabric, but she had mercy on my stash. I used faux leather leftover from Bella’s witch costume to form the gusset. It gets dragged around as much as carried, and after I just wipe it clean.

The interior and strap are a heavy canvas. I wanted to encase magnet strips for easy opening and closing, but couldn’t find any as thin or as strong as I wanted. Above, you can barely see the black Velcro I ended up using.

The inside pocket is exactly the right size to hide a Pamper. (Sofie doesn’t want the whole world to know her potty training business.)

The HBIC Toddler Tote is a big win! Seeing these photos is making me wonder exactly how long our Christmas lights will stay up though…
