I recently linked to the adorable Jane Austen Birthday Party and also saw this cute tote in their shop over there! It seems like I saw a tutorial somewhere, but I have scoured her blog and cannot find it.
Anyway, start with a tote bag, some black fabric and heat & bond and you are all set to make this cute tote! You can find the printable silhouette for this project here.
I thought she would look so cute with a little rose in her hair and a necklace - you can add whatever you like!
