Ashlee from My So Called Crafty Life shows how to make this awesome cross-body tote out of a vintage tablecloth. The leather (or faux leather) bottom makes a cool contrast with the vintage tablecloth. It only takes a small bit of the tablecloth to make this, so you could use one that has damage in places. Or, use your favorite vintage fabric scraps or even a tea towel. Go to My So Called Crafty Life for the tutorial.
