Tote Bag Conversion

I converted a tote bag with a logo from my husband's work into a cheerful useful all purpose bag just for me using some methods shown on Sewing With Nancy by Mary Mulari. She puts a zipper on the outside of the pocket, which is an easy application method.

I also added one of those magnetic snaps by undoing the top edging (lap) seam, putting something thicker between the fabric layers, adding the snap, and resewing the seam.

I covered a piece of needle point plastic canvas with my fun fabric for a study base inside the bag.
