Make a Library Card Tote Bag

My little guys loves to go to the library. Of course, when we do his eyes are bigger than the amount of time we will actually have to spend time with what we check out. It's like the kid version of Target: we always go in just to pick up that one book and leave with our arms full. Apparently Abigail from Lovin Our Chaos has a daughter with a similar biblophilia and she made her this adorable tote to help out.

Now her daughter can carry her own books and be responsible for her own library card since it lives right in the tote. I love the added bonus that the library books now have a home in your home instead of in a pile on the table or scattered throughout the house. Since it takes less than 30 minutes to make, there's no reason why your kiddos can't get their own super rad tote, too!
