Cool tote bags

My estate sale acquaintance gave me a piece of vintage fabric! It is a way cool damask print in great colors but if you touched it, you would realize that the quality was not great. It is a screen printed fabric as opposed to woven. So, considering that it felt like itchy shag carpeting and would not launder well, I ruled out apparel wear. Being that my favorite thing in the world to make is a tote bag, the orange and red fabric made TWO totes. One large enough to take to the beach; the other, roomy for a wallet, cellphone and lipgloss.
Forgot to take a photo of the interior but lined it with red and pink floral flannel, it coordinated perfectly!
