here is a tote bag i have been working on for a few weekends. keep in mind i am still sort of a beginner when it comes to sewing.
the front floral panels are upholstery samples from a giant sample book i found for 50cents at SCRAP. the handles are the coolest part. they are from a pair of suspenders that mom found. i took them apart, sewed them in, and they will probably be the most sturdy handles i will ever have.
this tote bag is quite "gi normous", but that's all i know how to make..... something big.
