I love these European market totes! The first time I ever saw one was after the birth of my daughter. A friend from my Sunday school class brought us a meal, and she carried it in one of these. She had her initial on hers too (but without the ribbon), and I really thought it was cute. Then, I saw one in Paula Deen's magazine, and I thought, "I need one of those!" In case you haven't seen these, they are completely collapsible. They fold up flat once you take out the little plastic thingies that go in the little "pockets" for support. I monogrammed mine with the "French Dot" embroidery alphabet found here, and then I added the ribbon tie. Now I'm ready for the next potluck or picnic. I'm sure there are a million uses for this thing!
