Hey,


^ please ignore wierd expression.


My entry was completely inspired by Dr. Suess'  environmentally conscious book( and my personal fav) The Lorax. If you have never read the book and can't wait to know what its particular message is heres a link to the musical video version.

ok. so the bag was made out of two extra large tees i had. it is a reversible slouchy bag, complete with pockets! The Lorax accompanied by his very green statement is stenciled on both the inside and outside.

truffula trees




YES THAT REALLY IS THE WHOLE LORAX STORY....it was very entertaining.


i wore it on a trip to san francisco and i think it fit in very well with the city's effort to become even more green.

thanks so much for looking!  Wink

I love that the whole story is written on one side! I used to do things like that; I love the look of writing on a project such as this. The whole thing is brilliant.

  As a *hard-core* Seuss fan and having the Lorax as my #1 Seuss book, I'm in love with this!!!

  And the Truffula trees are adorable! You totally gave me an idea for a felted beg.... Wink

I like that you had the stencil on both sides of the bag so even if you reversed it, you still get to see Lorax!
