EDM challenge 127 - Tote bag

A few years ago, I fell and broke some bones. I was off work for a while, and my wonderful co-workers created a care package for me. In this tote bag, they placed gifts such as scented candles, musical relaxation tapes, a book stand, herbal teas, chocolate covered blueberries, and a tiny stuffed polar bear. I was very touched by the gesture and appreciated every one of those gifts. I'm positive that their kindness and compassion contributed to my recovery. And the tote bag itself makes me smile every time I use it.

The pocket in the front has a bit of musical score printed on it. I went to the web and printed it off in light grey, pasted it on the page, and then drew the Chopin bag on top. In case you can't tell, the "p" is a quill pen. The bag is hanging off the back off my patio chair because it is finally nice enough to draw outside.

Nice hatching! And I like the design there because I kinda like Chopin eventhough I don't really play the piano :D
