This totebag is made of a really soft green cord fabric with accent strips of a once-favourite shirt added on.  The front has a pocket:

Here's the back view of the bag:

ouu that's really pretty. The accent material is just perfect for the green cords. Nice construction too. Excellent purse!

Thanks for all the nice comments from everyone.
To answer noidonthaveaninside voice, the cord fabric was easy to work with, but the accent fabric is a stretch jersey and it was a pain because it wanted to move out of place a lot when I top-stitched.

I am obsessed with cord too. I never have any problem sewing with it. This is a great tote, by the way.

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.
