Repurposed Applique Tote

This tote is made from a large applique design. Most of the applique is on the front of the tote ...

This tote is made using a beautiful piece of hand dyed damask tablecloth with an intricate design which I machine appliqued onto it.

The piece of appliqued fabric was intended to be a focal design for a wearable art jacket which never got made and subsequently turned into a ufo where it hung on my design wall for some years before I decided to “repurpose” it.

The tote is one of several items I’ve been “creatively recycling” from old fabric and ufos that I have lying around, and you can read the full story on my blog at http://www.linda-matthews.com

    Linda,
    I love your bag. I have made hundreds of "artisan" bags over the years and I always try to take good pictures of the outer features and at least one on the inside, too. I had to chuckle when I clicked on your snapshot of the inside of the bag, I thought to myself, "Did I post these photos?"
    Thanks for the inspiration.
