Day 2 of Tote making

This tote is made out of a mans suit coat , suede and tapestry fabric. I found out that it is difficult to work  with such thick layers.Too hard on the hands. I think today I will go back to my batiks for the next tote.
 I like to put  large pockets in my totes so you can put a book or magazines in the pocket.
            I always put in a zippered pouch so important things like glasses & credit cards stay put
 I am not sure if I like the menswear look. What do you think? Would you like this for a gift.
Check back Friday to see the next tote.


  1. I do like this tote! Great job! It has a more tailored look and looks moe like a winter bag that you would throw over the arm of a winter coat. It's a very nice Christmas gift!

  2. I love the 'men's wear' look, it is a great bag.

  3. I love this one, and I think the heavier fabrics will wear longer in a tote bag! How fun to see the different totes each day!

  4. I really like the look of this one. Would make it stronger to last longer I'm sure.
