On one of my numerous Wal-Mart shopping expeditions I saw some fairly cute, very basic bags that were made of a light weight canvas with matching handles, and they were only $5.00. I really wanted to buy one but decided I could make one that I liked even more, in colors of my choosing. So tonight I checked my fabric selection and decided on a nice red/white/blue striped denim fabric, and set out to make my own version of the Wal-Mart $5 bag, aptly renamed "The Rachel".

|Earlier today Autumn told me she wanted a bag to hold some of her Squinkies (little girl toys - just take my word for it). I liked my tote bag so much that I decided to use the same fabric for Autumn's draw string bag.|
