While I do support the use of reusable bags, they tend to wear out quickly and I have quite a lot laying around the house. I knew when I bought this tote that I wanted to use it for a pillow. 
The fabric which I used for the top and bottom panels is from the workroom, it has a nice metallic finish that really brings out the sheen of the City Lights’ logo.

Overall, I’m ridiculously happy with how this project turned out, and the most satisfying aspect was that the whole thing came together in under an hour!
