Here's a look at something new that I've been trying. I found these canvas totes at a local craft store and just couldn't resist the urge to fancy them up a bit. They are so painfully plain, but are a good size and are very well made. For a long time now I have been totally smitten with embroidery and find myself drawn to anything that incorporates it. The sort of old fashioned, handmade quality it lends to an item really appeals to me.
busy bee...with fabric pen still on :)
I'm not loving the bee design yet, but it's a start. I do love the idea of these bags being used by little kids as they carry books home from the library, or for bringing all of their favorite toys and treasures with them on a long car trip. Hopefully someone will find them useful.
