I apologize in advance for the length; please scroll to the pics at the bottom if I'm boring you...
I got in a very bad funk last summer over life and when it knocks you down and takes your lunch money. I began crafting again as therapy...creating something always makes me feel better about myself.
And as a former professional actress, I've always craved attention from total strangers. As a middle-class midwesterner of middle years, I've grown very tired of 'keeping up with the latest fashions' which in this area means buying mass-produced garbage made by underpaid people in undeveloped areas.
That has all combined to make me a shameless exhibitionist of my crafting...I do it everywhere! I'm fairly lucky because where I live crafting has always been in style, so I gets lots of positive comments and wishful "I wish I could do thats"! So my fellow crafters I say; get out there and flaunt what you be makin'!
That said, here are the pics of my new craft tote, which is still a WIP (work in progress)
She's a vintage piece done in Black Work on the bag back (the lame caption is my own, but that's what she's sayin' to me when I look at her!)
The left front pocket is my favorite Urban Threads design:
He's going to have black fabric paint adorn his nifty ninja togs! But my teen-age son says,
"If you see a ninja, he isn't a ninja (it's a joke in his high school)
And this is the right front pocket, a free design from Urban Threads:
As a little girl I actually had a bunny that ate knitting and crocheted pieces!
Finally my cat Ben wanted to help so I let him model:
Let me know what you think, I'm a big girl!
