The top of the tote has been blanket stitched with rose red pearl cotton thread all the way around.
One the front, I have added a scan of a receipt for sacks of grain sold by the Pheonix Milling Co. in Sacramento, California (my home town) dated Oct. 25, 1894. This original receipt was scanned and printed on fusible fabric. It is appliqued to ivory and soft reds cottage rose linen fabric. The receipt is trimmed with red and gold trim machine stitched on. Surrounding the cottage rose fabric is vintage ivory piping/rick-rack trim. The lower left corner has a vintage lace doily hand stitched on with a circle of rose red colored velvet under it. On top of the doily is a vintage metal button with glass jewels in diamond and ruby colors. Across the bottom are three buttons which started as clear acrylic which I adhered cut-outs of the wrapping from vintage embroidery thread.
The back of the tote has a lined pocket done in the cottage rose linen fabric with a red velvet trim on the top and a vintage ivory shell button.
This tote bag is designed to be carried by hand.
