What materials did you use? This tote was created from six different pieces of Art Cloth - cloth that has been dyed, stenciled, stamped, and painted. I call this cloth my Clean up Cloth because the dyed fabric is used to wipe off paint brushes and containers, some of which were used to create different Art Cloth or the cloth that I am creating. Sometimes the paintbrushes are cleaned off on the back of the cloth or to create a frame around the cloth. The result is a stiff cloth that is wonderful for many applications. I even use regular wall paint on the back to stiffen it. The tote design comes from a Craftsy class that I am simultaneously taking called The Charm Tote.

I would buy that purse! It is too cute! I love everything about it. What is the handle made from?

Thank you. The handle is made from fat piping covered with purse fabric then wrapped with embroidery thread.

I love this bag. Could you tell me if the pattern you used is available? Also, you say in your description that the squares were made stiff sometimes with house paint. Can one sew through this? And my last question...Is there batting or any type of stabilizer in between the squares and the lining? Thank you so much. You have inspired me to sign up for The Art of Cloth Dyeing class.
