I had an old tote with good handles and good interior structure (dividers, zippered pockets), but the exterior was worn out. I decided to cover it with pinstripe suiting and add a pocket embellished with graphics of printers at work behind clear vinyl, in a frame of pinked teal velveteen. The graphics came from, which permits noncommercial use of many of their their cuts and caps.

Material Notes

wool pinstripe suiting, clear vinyl, teal velveteen, an old tote bag, and graphics from
