Monogrammed J.Crew Tote

Can you believe the school year is almost over?  For some of you it may already be over! (Poor Kandi!) C finished up over a week ago, but this is J's last week of school.  I am such a procrastinator when it comes to getting a teacher appreciation gift.  Usually I run into whatever store is on the way to my child's school, and grab a gift card.  But this year while out shopping at our local J.Crew store, I came across these fabulous totes, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do....

Jacob's teacher is young, so I decided to monogram her first name on the bag.  I can see her using this tote at the beach or  pool this summer, or to help carry books and her lunch back and forth to school next year.  These totes are sturdy enough to be great for a quick trip to the grocery store.

I could not resist making a bag for myself!

I love picking up scarves at the J. Crew outlet.  I had to include these with their gifts. 

If you don't own an embroidery machine, but you like this look, look up your local embroidery shop, most shops are willing to do custom work for a small fee.

These bright totes are so fun!  Thank you J. Crew!  Here is a link to this fabulous bag....Boardwalk Tote
