Vintage Linen Tote

Once again, I've dipped into my vintage linen stores and used a piece to make this nice tote from a table runner.  I made the size custom to the linen I was using and added some new fabric and handles to complete it.

I encased heavy cardboard in cloth and placed it in the bottom to give it some structure.
 I also added a pocket on the inside and one on the outside.

I played a bit with some stitch variations on the inside and the top of the pocket on the inside.
