As I said, I stayed with my sister last week and took a lot of projects with me to work on while I was there. Previously, I had slightly lost my mojo with sewing particularly with stuff to stock my tables with at craft fairs.
A while back Vonnie decided to wholesale order some gorgeous 100% cotton tote bags. When they arrived I said I would take 25 as I had a good few ideas of how I wanted to embellish them. In fact at the time the hoarder in me screamed take 50, take 50 but I decided to be rational and take 25 and then if I needed more I could always get some more.
The fabric I used was a gorgeous fabric I had picked up from Dunelm Mill called Afternoon Tea which I had left over from the Time from Tea swap. I cut out all the cups and teapots that were on the fabric and simply stitched them onto the bag. However, I personally think it has a lovely effect.
Pictures below to show the placements etc. I made two bags with this fabric, one with the three on it and the other one has designs on each side.
