…Now I’m a big beach tote! I know that I posted a version of this a couple of weeks ago but after making 3 more (numbered 2,3 & 4 as hand stenciled on the outside) I have refined the design slightly by adding nylon webbing to the handle tips, leather trim to the eyelets & a double stitch to the patch pockets. I’ve started numbering them so if you ever end up with one you’ll know that it was a limited batch & you have one! These big slouchy totes are a true carry-all. I picture lugging it to the beach filled with towels, magazines & water bottles. The fabric is recycled hunting tents from the 1950′s & 60′s & the straps are a quilted contrast cotton. The leather cording can either fall to the sides or can be used to tie the opening closed. They can be thrown in the wash for easy care (just make sure they go in a low heat dryer) I enjoy making each one different & truly unique.
