This grey striped tote is a birthday gift for my friend.
It is made entirely of repurposed materials.
Hopefully she’ll think that’s cool and not weird.
The grey striped material is from a nice cotton curtain.
The flower rosette embellishments are made from jersey t-shirts and stitched down by machine.
The inside is lined with another striped curtain, this time in yellow and from Pottery Barn.
I love the weight and size (16×17 inches before seams) of the bag. I boxed the corners (2 inches) to make it roomy and added an inside pocket to corral small things like keys.
I think it is a perfect bag for the library.
