I made some more tote bags for my friend’s girls. This time I appliqued their initials on the front. The pink one didn’t really have too high of a contrast unfortunately, but it’s still cute. Note to self….always use stabilizer behind the applique. I tried to short-cut on the first one, and I shouldn’t have.
Based on the same tutorial from Skip to my Lou, I also made a similar tote with some linen, applique and sketchy stitching as part of a contribution to the handmade craft swap at Alewives Fabric last week (amazing! super fun!). I can’t wait to share that with you! I loved how it turned out. However, I can’t share those pictures until I find my camera cord. We are installing new wood floors in my office, and I had to empty out the entire messy room. So, my camera cord is in a box somewhere. Hopefully the floors, etc. will be done soon and I can unpack that box. We also painted the room a really pretty yellow and I’m so excited to get back in there and get re-organized!
