Craft: Hello Kitty Tote Bag

For first grade, DD and her classmates are required to use a tote bag given by the school. We were told that we could decorated it before school starts, so instead of waiting until the end of summer to get started, I figured sooner is probably better than later.

To begin, I had a plain tote bag from the school, I also picked up some fabrics and a zipper from the local craft store.  
I made Hello Kitty signature red bow first.
A interior pocket was also sewn in -- so DD could put her wallet or notes in it.
Since I want to make sure DD's school supplies don't fall out, I also put in a zipper for her.
Finally, Hello Kitty's face was sewn onto the tote bag.
Here's DD with her school tote bag. The straps are a bit long so I am going to shorten them, but otherwise, her bag is almost all ready for school in September.
