I needed a small tote bag and couldn't find one anywhere.
So I did what every crafter in the world does, I made my own.
Want to know why there's a bag of pistachio's in there?
Because we spend most of our summer at the ball park watching this little superstar play.
I hate lugging my purse around at the games and needed something small to put the essentials in.
You know, essentials like my phone, cash for concession stand, pistachio's, sunflower seeds...
the important things.
I found this small canvas bag at Hobby Lobby for $1.99. Perfect size.
I was afraid the chevron would show up too much under the flower, so I laid the inside of the flower stencil on first.
Then added the chevron stencil over it.
I created the chevron by using a zig zag border pattern on my Cameo and duplicating it.
Then painted. I used regular paint with fabric medium added to it.
After it's dry, peel the old stencils off and add the flower stencil. Because you added the negative parts of the flower first, you'll be able to see where to put it.
And paint again.
Now the flower looks okay, but I thought the outline needed to be more defined.
So I added puff paint around the edges. Also a button in the middle and a couple of beads tied to ribbon for the zipper pull.
It's too long for my model, but it's perfect for me.
Believe me, you would rather see Jordyn modeling it instead of me.
Did you notice the necklace she's wearing?
It's the domino baseball necklaces I made for all of us to wear because "Team Jace" needs a little bling in the stands.
And just because I can, let's have one more look at Slugger, shall we?
Here are the link parties I join.
