Homemade Hooking Tote

I made this hooking tote for myself about 10 years ago ~ actually made two and gifted one to my friend Shari.  As you can see I used some vintage bark cloth, cheap burlap and cottons.  It has pockets on the two ends for supplies, a hooked flower and cute cat pin on one side.
On the other side is another hooked flower and a crow head pin.  Both the cat and crow pins were gifted to me but for the life of me cannot remember who that sweetie was. 
It is lined with beige cotton and I sewed an inside divided pocket for more storage, check book, car keys or whatever.
The instructions came from this booklet called "Collections", a Kindred Spirits publication.  So if you sew and would like your own tote, you can purchase the book from Ali HERE.
As I'm getting excited about the Cape May rug camp this September, thought I'd dust off my hooking tote since Ali will be my teacher.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to give an update on my latest project and soon I'll offer a giveaway.  Will tell you more about that in a day or two.  Have a great afternoon.
