Gypsy Bohemian Coiled Tote

Here are some pictures of my latest fabric coiled tote bag in progress.


It started in a very ordinary way, looking like one of my average sized coiled baskets.


Detail of the stitching.


But it kept growing bigger and bigger. Here it is looking a lot like a prairie landscape, which I quite like, and might just have to make another basket that ends here!



Still needs to be bigger, so adding more colours.... 


Checking out the placement for the straps with twill tape.



Deconstructing this old leather jacket for pieces to use for the straps.



And the finished bag!


It's available in my PrairieThreads Etsy shop for purchase here.
