Groovy 1970s Tote Bags

I was digging in the studio and unearthed SIX sets of bamboo purse handles. I’m sure it was some sort of score from a clearance rack. So I dug into the fabric stash and found some groovy hand-me-downs from Mom. The one in the photo here was a chair upholstery project. We had a groovy house.
