This is my aunt with a bag she 'ordered' from me at the beginning of the summer. She had a perfect sized retired tote bag which I used for size reference, but I made a proper bottom instead of making it entirely flat. I also cut out a flower from the fabric, stuffed it and added it to a ball chain. The design label is a computer printout (t-shirt transfer). So, anyway, my aunt showing the bag. (Would you believe she's 70+ ?!)

This is such a pretty bag!  I'm curious how you did your labels?  Was it an iron-on transfer?  I'm sort of illiterate in that area.  I've printed labels onto fabric sheets fed through the printer and then cut them out, but haven't tried iron-ons yet.

I also really really LOVE the fabric flower, too--so great! Cheesy

Your aunt does not look her age...my mom is 69 and can run circles around me for the things she accomplishes and she doesn't look her age, either.    Anyway, great job on the bag! Cheesy

Thanks everyone! Cheesy My aunt will be pleased to see your comments; I think she'll be popping in later today.

To answer your question: Yes, the label is an iron-on transfer for dark material. The fabric is from a Swedish chain department store, hlens. Smiley
