Large tote bag. Vintage handwoven Donegal Tweed handbag.
Donegal Tweed top handle tote or shopper bag
I acquired this lovely vintage Donegal Tweed, 0handwoven in Downings, from one of my neighbours . Not sure how old it is but she said she had it a number of years.
The fabric is stunning bright colours in a mix of orange/pink/yellow/grey threads. I've kept the design simple to show off the fabric. The tweed is lined with foam to give it structure and I had some modern "harlequin" heavyweight cotton fabric in grey/pink/yellow which I used as lining. There's an inside pocket. Handles are padded with foam and long enough to fit over your shoulder. Magnetic clasp fastenings and 4 metal feet.
