The Caroline Tote has a retro vibe and a fully modern functionality. Designed with grown-up ladies in mind, it is a miniature handbag that has also been a favorite of small humans such as granddaughters and nieces. A perfect little vacation bag even if you normally carry a large bag at home. I pick out the fabrics that make me think of slack key guitars and drinks with paper umbrellas.
The tote is fully lined and interfaced, with the essential features you need. A zipper pocket for your cards and cash. An open pocket for keys. The main compartment for a phone and lip balm, maybe your tourist-y map. Short handles fit comfortably in your hand for swinging down the street, or dangle them over your wrist, so cute!
The shape, trim, and button flap, remind me of a wicker picnic basket on its way to the beach. And the Caroline Tote always features an over-sized button, more for humor than security.
All of my handbag designs are named after special friends’ granddaughters. The Caroline Tote is definitely charmed. Thank you, Caroline.
