Tote Extravaganza

 Inspired by my header...I finally got around to making myself a little purse/tote bag. I had a houndstooth jacket that I got at the D.I. about a year ago. It was unfortunately cropped, so I didn't buy it for wearing. But the fabric was just too great to pass up. It is a heavy & thick knit material. I cut up the jacket and paired it with a contrasting floral on the inside and the embellishment flower. I kept the selvage on the flower just for fun. (Some selvages are SO pretty!)  I love the harsh houndstooth print with the soft floral. And when I get sick of the flower, it is removable!

Caroline's old scripture bag that I made her was on the ghetto side. So I made this one for her birthday yesterday. She loves this color of green and I am loving houndstooth, so this one was rather fun.

Small Girl's Tote

I used my favorite tote bag tutorial and whipped out this precious reversible tote today for Stella's friend's birthday party. Doesn't this just look like it belongs to a little lady named Violet? It was tough to let this one go...

Funky Scripture Totes

I made these scripture totes for the twins for Christmas. They have been baptized for almost 2 years and had their own quad for almost a year so I figured it was long overdue. It was the only homemade thing I could manage this time around.  Caroline helped me put the fabrics together. The black & white fabric was a little girls shirt that had a hole in hit.  I really liked how they both turned out.
