Ah, a lovely vacation day spent hiding in the studio on a sweltering 90+ degree Minnesota day! Went into the studio to just see what could be made with some of the stash and came out with a wrap bracelet. I love it. The hubby thinks I should have added more silver beads. Hmmm. We'll have to see how I feel about it after I wear it a few times.
The Buffalo or Indian Head Nickel coins were minted in the US from 1913 to 1938. This particular one is actually a button that I purchased in Rapid City, South Dakota. It's been waiting a few years for me to do something with it. I think it'll be happy around my wrist.

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.
