Based upon the pattern for Paradise Bag, I made this larger tote. I replaced the handles with a single pre-made handle and attached it with loops. The Paradise Bag was squat, more wide than tall. I made this a bigger bag, more of a tote. I also made it taller than wide. The Paradise Bag pattern turned out to lend itself to resizing.
In the bottom right, I embroidered a little birdie and added a large stone bead near the handle to keep with the nature embellishments.
