This tote was such fun to make. I started by felting the flowers in random places on the felt. Then, with my embroidery needle, I added stems, sewed on felt leaves and attached the felt vase. After adding some beads, the entire piece was hand sewn to a gray background. The front panel was stitched to a piece of navy felt, then stitched together. The tote was then lined in a solid gray cotton. Then, the long, across the body, handles were added. This bag is very roomy. It measures approximately 17 inches across and 13 inches from the top of the bag to the bottom seam. The handles are 19 inches from the top of the bag to the top of the handles. It will be ideal to take to the beach or pool this summer! I am an American Grandma and this bag was entirely handmade by me in a smoke free home. There is no additional charge for shipping. A handmade gift card will accompany each purchase with my compliments. Thanks for visiting my shop. Come again soon!
