I have up-cycled a strong plain, bought calico bag and made it into a totally useful fold-up book bag/shopping tote.
The top panel of the bag is a fab fresh design of little white polka dots on a bright pink background
The bag closes with a purple elasticated loop and a painted wooden button.
The handles are long enough to carry the bag over your shoulder and have been machine embroidered in bright pink flower design.
The seams of the bag have been over-sewn in bright pink thread.
To close the bag:-
Fold the calico part of the bag in half .
Tuck in the handles and fold the calico part onto the cotton top.
Start at one end , fold in half and half again and do up with the button.
Pop in your bag ready for next time!
Bag measurements 14.75in long (26.5in to top of the handles)by 14in wide when open .
Measurements when closed 6in x 4in x 1.75in deep
