Tartan Swing Tote


A roomy tote bag made from a vintage woven wall hanging featuring a version of Fragonard's, The Swing. She's having so much fun she's kicked off her shoe and it's flying through the air. Actually there is no second shoe so I painted one in because I couldn't have her hobbling home in shame after having a wild time. The scene continues on the back with a finely dressed young couple. I painted in some details, pom pom-ed her shoes gave her a whopper tartan bow of some ancient woven ribbon.

The tote is unlined so that you can see the reverse of the tapestry on the inside, box base and sturdy handles.
