Indigo tote bag

Whilst in Bangkok last December I saw some beautiful info tote bags for sale – quite expensive, so thought I would make my own.  I’m really pleased with the way it turned out, using fabrics I bought in Japan and an Indian fabric as the lining.  I zigzag stitched the outer fabrics onto a piece of heavy calico to give extra strength and used  pieces of denim fabric for the top and bottom and handle pieces.
