Discovered in a thrift shop, this mid century flat sheet (mint condition) totally caught my eye! It's bold pattern in shades of yellow, green and orange made it perfect for creating the ultimate 60's mod tote. A repurposed "old school" bed spread in mustard paired up nicely for the lining and adds a little texture. Great for a teen, mom or any girl who loves all things groovy and fun!

Why use a plain old market bag when you can have one that looks good enough to use as a carry-on or oversized purse? Fill with goodies at the Farmer’s Market, use it at the grocery store, or fill with everything you need for a day trip. This tote can hold a lot! Pleated side pockets large enough for a bottle of wine or two liter bottle of soda. Front three pocket panel keeps you organized and is perfect for wallet, phone, and sunglasses.

Straps sturdy with heavy interfacing and signature SANDbag reinforcement; all seams double stitched. Interior seams double serged for reinforcement.

Lightweight and durable.
Folds up easily for storage and for travel.
Machine wash cold/gentle, then air dry.

Dimensions: approx. 13” wide x 6” deep x 15.5” tall
Straps: approx. 22” long or 10” drop
Pattern placement will vary slightly, but will be as equally well thought out.

At Checkout Choose how many pockets you'd like:
•Original: 5 exterior pockets
•Deluxe: 5 exterior pockets AND interior 2 pocket panel

All SANDbags are designed and built by me out of recycled and repurposed clothing, curtains, linens and fabrics. All materials are pre-washed and dryed so there should be no fading or shrinking if you follow proper laundering instructions. All are made in a smoke and pet free environment. Most of my work consists of limited pieces due to the size of the items being repurposed. So if you see something you like…. Don’t wait, you may never see it again! Who knew recycling could look so cool?

The fabric for this SANDbag was BED LINEN and the lining was a BED SPREAD.

This item ready to ship.

*Love this tote, but wish it had a zipper closure or more than 7 pockets? Just contact me and I can build a similar one with additional features.
