Talk about GOING GREEN!!...The ultimate market tote! Everything used in the construction is from upcycled fabrics. Vintage linens were used to create this wonderful ONE OF A KIND market tote/bag.
A wonderful very retro linen dish cloth was used for the whimsical front pocket. The lining and the body are from vintage Irish linen tablecloths.
The wonderful well worn feel is great!
I have made a wristlet to attach to the tote...no need to carry your purse...just fill the wristlet with your cell phone,credit cards and cash.
The wide strap makes is comfy on the shoulder...it is long enough to put over your head to wear on either side.

Measurements: aprox. 18 x 16 inches with a 3 inch gusset..
strap is 2 inches wide.


You can't see it but you wouldn't believe the stuff I had in this tote!
It really is great to take to the market,beach,gym,even for a overnight bag

Love the idea of the attached wristlet, was thinking of creating one for my own tote that I carry to the grocery store because I am constantly digging for my wallet at the bottom. Thanks for the inspiration!

You have a great blog :)
