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.
