"Kendra-isms" Tote and Journal
Tiny tote measures 9 x9 inches
Detail of photo and fabric flower
Okay, so I totally outsourced this one! Although I feel pretty confident with paper and paint, I can not sew to save my life. And, if you can believe it, my Mom is a home decor seamstress and decorative painter! So, I called an expert on this one and took my bag of fabric swatches, pre-printed photo (onto canvas) and fusible interfacing over to my Mom's house. . .
I have to say, I really enjoyed making this little tote (it was so much smaller than I expected). And although my Mom is really the one who deserves the credit for helping me put it together, I love working with fabric (usually reserved for collages) and relished the opportunity to use some of the swatches that I've been hoarding over the years. I also loved making the fabric flower I learned how to do on shona's blog.
Next stop for The Artistic Mother's Group: project 4 - making a Vision Statement Banner. I plan to post the beginnings of it next week at this time. Until then, happy crafting . . .
