Words With Totes

I've been experimenting with my Silhouette machine and working on some cute totes for my shop. This is my first completed one, Live.Play.Love.



I used my tutorial for the bike with "flowers". And I used the same method I used for AJ's Dino Tee for the lettering on this bag. The bulk of the bag is unbleached cotton and I used various designer fabrics for the rest of it. It measures about 12" x 14". I lined the entire tote with batting (I love using these totes for laptops so I have to make them sturdy!).









This tote is now in my shop!!

On a sidenote, AJ has been asking for one of these lately



He's convinced daddy is going to get him one when he gets home from work. Good luck buddy! It would be nice to have one of these in this 100 degree weather though!

Linking up to these parties.

  1. Very cute bag. I still love that bike tee too. Both are adorable.

    Have you ever tried to make a jewelry roll? Do you know what that is? I've been wanting one and was wondering if you've ever played with making them with fun fabrics. Just a thought...:)

    Hope you are having a good weekend!

  2. LOVE that bag! And holy cow I just got finished having a (much too) long convo with my kids about why we will not be getting an inflatable water park for the back yard! Silly me, I left the Sunday ads (including Toys R Us - doh!) on the kitchen table :)
