Now a little something about my Scrappy Art Totes!



I made my original tote because I wanted something artsy to carry my art supplies in when I go on trips. I also wanted to make something that represented my style, something that combined my artwork with my other passions like my love of scrapbooking and sewing.
I create each of my totes to look like a scrapbook page. They measure 12" x 12 " like the traditional sized scrapbook paper. Fabric and scrap paper are so similar in design and can be layered in the same way. For this tote I used the painting of the little girl "Purity" that I painted a few weeks ago. She is transferred onto a fabric transfer sheet, and sewn on layers of fabric in a cute and whimsical way. This tote and most all my totes are embellished with paper flowers, buttons and ribbons, just like a scrapbook page would be decorated. I added the quote " A life without dreams is like a garden without flowers."
The back side is done in the same way. There is a pocket big enough for your cell phone or any of your treasures. The inside of the tote is lined with a nice soft pink floral and I have a heavy interfacing in between each side to give the tote some heft. I made the straps on this tote extra long, (21 inches) so it can be worn easily over the shoulder.

I will pay for the shipping for this auction.

Thanks for looking!
Hugs,
Charlie
