Firewood Tote

Here's a new firewood tote I made this week. Yes, those posts about firewood really did have a purpose.
From an online pattern, I bought an upholstery remnant (1 yd) and about 3 yards of a duck cloth. This tote, however became much larger than I imagined. The directions wrote it would be 26 inches long, but mine became closer to 30 inches long. You can easily put a small child in here and carry them!
The decorative center panel isn't even necessary - it's just top stitched onto the larger main piece of brown duck cloth.
The straps are not what was written for either. I used a black strapping that was about 2 1/2 inches wide. The 3 1/2 inch wide Jute strapping(for upholstery seats/webbing) was far to expensive.
We like it though; it holds a full evening's worth of wood in one trip!
