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.

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!

Very cool.  I totally thought of making my Lorax bag reversable too since it had the deep purple lining, but couldn't really think how I wanted to do it.  I tend to make my own patterns because they make more sense to me.  I also thought about using old t - shirts to create the bag, but went with the purple since it's my favorite color.  Great minds think alike.  =)

That is one incredable bag.  Great job.  I love that you wrote out the whole Lorax story.  And the trees are definetly the icing on the cake.

I need this thnead! Seriously, this makes me want to frolic around in my barbaloot suit and craft all day. Super cute stencil. I also like that it's made from tees--it seems like just the right stretchy fabric for truffula trees.
