Wabi-sabi shabby tote

Stopping in to share something I made last week.  Our Creating Outside the Book club members were each given a tote bag in April and were tasked to decorate them to use to bring home our monthly kits.  I had so many ideas from dying it to adding ruffles and more.  I came across some bits of fabric I had picked up at a previous meeting and went from there with the imperfect layers, embroidery floss and buttons.   Despite having a sewing machine I love, this one seemed to call for some hand sewing.  It's intentionally wabi-sabi  in a shabby chic/primitive way.  What do you think?
