So...the 3 Rs used to be "reading, writing, and 'rithmetic"...but we know what they mean now!



And each bag has a picture on the back:



One's a tree, one's the earth, and the last is a "peacycle" sign.



I really had a great time with this -- it was the first stencil that I'd made since doing potato prints in elementary school.  And after making that comment to someone the other day...I had to work potato prints into the project.  So I made a stamp out of a potato for the hearts and stars.  I made my own stencils for the pictures (free-handed the continents though).  I used storebought letter stencils and also storebought totes.  Definitely going to do more stenciling -- I'd like to make a nonblobby version of the peacycle sign and also stencil some slogans that I thought up but couldn't fit onto these bags.  Thanks for looking!
