Tartan Tote

I managed to get this made from the bits of tartan I had left over from my 'plaid week' disaster.  I've teamed it with some curly pile chocolate brown fun fur to make a strong base and handles.  There was a lot of pulling and stretching and tugging involved with the tartan - it had distorted in the washing machine, which is why I had such a hard time of it making a skirt.  Anyway, I managed to get two rectangles of it back in shape and voila!  I made the bag design up myself, working around the pieces I had left and lined it with some deep brown cotton sheeting, adding an internal pocket for phone, keys etc.  This is up for sale in my Folksy shop now ... fingers crossed ... someone has listed it as a 'favourite'!
