Looking for the ultimate in cute handbags? This orange handbag or small tote bag with gorgeous mid century modern style is perfect for you! This hand bag is completely original, and there will never be another one like it!

The Vintage WOW Factor: I created this cool handbag from a 1970s home decor atomic fabric that the designer called "Samurai," which boasts a wildly colorful, midcentury modern look. Cute purses have gone mod!

Other details:

* I've enhanced the vintage fabric with orange cotton duck for the bottom portion.

* This small tote bag has gold twisted cord straps attached with bright orange buttons.

* Inside the shoulder bag I've used modern cotton in a soft blue shade to create a durable lining, and added four pockets for convenience.

* This small shoulder bag measures 8 inches (20 cm) square.

* The straps measure 26 inches (66 cm), designed to allow the bag to be carried over the shoulder, tucked under the arm.

* There is a hook-and-loop tab closure over the top.

Because this cute purse is made mostly from vintage materials that I found at estate sales, there will never be another one like it! All Clever Ruthie handbags are absolutely *one of a kind.* And please check out my shop for more WOW Factor bags!
