The beginnings…

This was my first tote on my industrial machine.

brown n black tote front
I really like the black leather accent with the brown vinyl. Up-cycled leather pocket, bottom and handles.
brown n black tote back
Plain back, but look close – I used animal eyes on the strap ends for fun.
brown n black tote inside back
I still carry this bag – in doing so, I identified what does and doesn’t work in a tote. These handles are a little too short for me…


This was my second tote bag on my industrial machine and the pattern has morphed into what my “ostrich” vinyl bags are today.

green tote front
Green patterned vinyl remnant with upcycled green suede pocket on the front.
green tote back
A plain back.
green tote inside
Up-cycled drapery lining for the interior with a zippered top.
