I like to make totes to deliver my baby quilts. Benefits are using up leftover fabric, not buying wrapping paper or more likely, a paper wrapping bag, and the parents have something useful rather than trash. I finally got the totes made for the last two baby quilts I made. One quilt is delivered (owl quilt), parents were thrilled.
The other quilt has not been delivered. Baby was born early and I am letting Mom recuperate a bit before visiting.
Both totes have outside pockets (which holds card and washing instructions upon delivery). The sock monkey tote also has two inside pockets and a hanging tab.
Both totes where photographed with quilt inside, so you can see they are roomy :)
