I handmade this bag using fashion denim fabric in brown with some embroidery design in gold. I added to the front of the bag two appliqué flowers using dark blue denim and light blue cotton fabric. The flowers were sewn to the fabric, I used the zig zag stitch for the outer line and my crazy strait stitch for the inside. I also added to the flowers two wood orange beads. I decorated the main fabric with my crazy strait stitch, for this I used two different colors of thread (light blue and red) and for the back I used just black. The lining is a floral cotton fabric in purple, beige and green. It has two pockets, one large divided in three sections maybe for your pen, cellphone and ipod ( wow). The second one is a middle pocket… The bag measures 21" high ( 53,5 cm ) by 16 1/5" wide ( 42 cm ). The handles measure almost 23" from end to end ( almost 59 cm ) and they are made using linen fabric in light blue and also decorated with my crazy stitch using red thread.

The bag is my own new design and is 100% handmade by me with a lot of care and LOVE. It is a unique tote bag that you will love it.
