A bit ahead...

I am a bit ahead, I have done the tote bag. I hope that's ok. If not, let me know.
I am Norwegian and I can note find any translation for tote bag, can you explain the word "tote" to me?

Great looking tote bag. Tote means "to carry" Examples: We tote our groceries into the house when we get home. Which could also be said: We carry our groceries into the house when we get home. So in other words a TOTE BAG is a CARRY ALL Bag. Or a bag to carry everything in.
