I received a few chair covers that were sort of a hand me down, but never opened so it is a bit unfair to call this an upcycled item, but one of them has been given a new life.
A few pictures of it in its intended use, as a chair cover. It had a nice canvas weight and the front areas were actually a quilted fabric.
The tote completed, I used the quilted fabric for the sides and the handles. I paired this with a quilting fabric in an olive floral, the front which is the side shown, has a pocket, that does not show in the floral fabric.
I made the handles out of the quilted fabric and added a band of the floral to break up all the green.
Inside it is lined with the plain canvas that was the back of the chair cover, I added a magnetic snap as a closure.
