Mama Upton's Tribute MLB Tote For Her Sons

This is a custom designed tote that was commissioned by Yvonne to show her support for her sons, BJ and Justin.

BJ's side is in the blues and white of the Tampa Bay Rays. The team logo was prepared, entirely, by hand and machine appliqued. There are also 4 appliqued baseballs. Two of the baseballs, with hand embroidery, have BJ's name and jersy number (2) on them.

The reverse side features Justin's team (Arizona Diamondback) colors...burgandy, black, and tan. The team's snake logo was also prepared by hand and machine appliqued. There are also 4 baseballs appliqued. Two have Justin's name and number (10), hand embroidered, on them.

The inside pockets are evenly divided between the side for Justin and the other for BJ.

One side was pieced in Justin's burgandy and the other in BJ's navy blue. The bottom and strap were pieced in black.

The outer sections (on each side) are actually pockets with velcro tabs.

A key ring and 3 magnetic snaps were added to the inside.

Yvonne can wash, dry, and even iron this bag.

It measures 13" w x 14" h x 6 1/2" d. The strap measures 13".
