Skull Canvas Bag


I've been totally obsessed with painting canvas and sewing it up into totes and bags. 

This fabric was spray painted through a hand-cut stencil and then  decorated with loads of fabric paint. 


I'm so smitten.






Tip: If you see a trashed purse at a garage sale or second hand store that has cute handles, buy it. You can 'harvest' them (and sometimes other decorative/useful elements like zippers and snaps too) for use in your own projects.



I love how the sides look on this one.


What color of tote would you like to see me make? 

I'll whip one up from the comments.

Warmly,
~~~Nicole

Totally love them Niicole. The skulls one is really edgy and the handles are fab. Is that stitching around the images or white pen? Would love to see Black and White! You look really happy in your photo. Xx

I TOTALLY love those bags as well Nicole! Such yummy craftiness! I couldn't sow a button, much less a bag, but I love your creativity!! :)

Love the idea of painting canvas and making totes out of it. I did make totes for a while but used 'normal' fabric, this is so much cooler !
