So the Annie Tote. This bag is a cute everyday tote or upscale beach tote that I came up with last summer because I wanted something with a bit more personality. As soon as I started with the prototype, I looked at it and it's spunk and brightness reminded me of my momma, Ann.
This woman has been through it and still prevails. She was a widowed at 47, diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer at 64 and lost her house to a fire at 65. With all that yuck in her life, she still manages to try and find the bright side of things. She is usually my work traveling partner and we always, ALWAYS come back with some amazing stories. She is one of my biggest cheerleaders and the craziest granny our girls will ever have and I am thankful for all of it.
This bag is so fun and versatile. the interior fabric's are just as fun as the exterior. It's accented with a heavy duty pleather bottom and hand-stitched leather handles. it's great for an everyday tote, library tote or over-night bag for toddlers.
