Origami Tote

What you will need

  • 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.
