I had this tote bag, by Urban Outfitters, that came free in a magazine. I wish it would have lasted longer, but then the handles started ripping holes in the bag. So this weekend I decided to turn it into another bag instead of just getting rid of it.
I reinforced the holes where the old rope handles were, added a lining, put new handles and used the old handles as a rope drawstring.
It looks a bit like a duffle bag, I think. I love it, I'll take it to Glastonbury. It would make a good festival bag for me.
