    Ive posted this before but i thought it was good to put back on here since ive been discussing with some people in chat about how i do the copper work on them. The bag is made from sunbrella all weather canvas the dimensions are 22"wide 14"tall and 8"deep. The copper is all custom hammered by me to make the letters and they attach from beind with pop rivets to secure them i really need to finish the next one i started working on but here are the pics to show what this one looks like.

    Good looking tote. My granddaughter and I are making a few totes for her craft booth in December. The fabric is of great interest to me. Sometimes Hancocks may have this in our area. Where do you normally find it??? I also have some very sturdy lawn furniture which I need to re-web and make cushions for.

    Hello Chris,

    I see there are other people in here that enjoy metal work ... LoL! I love to make jewlery too. It is kind of close fussy work, so I have to be in the mood for it, but a very satisfing art.

    I don't make my own hammered metal though. This looks very interesting and cool. Are you going to share how you did this? I think being able to hammer out something would be fun.
