Fashionable Tote for that Oh So Fashionable Gal





Good Morning Everyone!
Bringing you a little stylish project.
What better way to start a new week than in style!
With a little tote, that is.
And a pretty one at that, wouldn't you agree?

My project is a fashionable tote to help a precious 'lil girl keep track of all her special items....those items that all little girls need on an incredible journey with her friends.

I think my daughter would have loved this when she was a little girl.  If it were larger, I think she would actually like it still!

I've used a muslin bag (8x10) from 3GirlJam that I decorated with some colorful fabric.  I fancied and sewed the bottom of the bag so that it would sit flat.  I really liked that extra feature!  I will definitely be using that technique over again.  I added the jumbo eyelets and included some colorful ribbon to fashion it as a little purse.  A sturdy little purse that would endure an outdoor adventure!


I've donned it front and center with a Pinque Peacock 1.5 Inch Fabric Covered Button.



That's it for me.  Hope it started your week with a little inspiration!

And remember...if your world includes a little girl

You were sent a precious princess in every way.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures! I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover. Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun! The journal block comes from their September Kit . Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower . It's big and has many uses! To start at the beginning of th
