Summer vacation sewing: Giant lightweight tropical print tote bag, made from a canvas remnant. The ends of the rope handles are wrapped and bound with heavy cotton thread to keep them from fraying excessively.

This was my first time setting a magnetic snap – it was quite simple and straightforward.
