Too bad I didn't take a "before" photo...this was a rummage sale find that I picked up for pennies. It had navy webbing handles, and the name of a business screenprinted across it. I washed it, cut it apart, and reconstructed it using a black and white trim to hide the name and then used the rest of the piece of trim for handles. A little part of the name still appears along the bottom of the trim. All in all, I feel pretty good about the interesting turnout of this particular tote bag!
