First pics... then words:




Okay, so the first thing I thought of when it came to making a reusable bag and recycling was, of course, CAPTAIN PLANET! I really didn't know at first how I would go by doing that... but I searched around my craft room and saw all of my multi colored felt and some lovely sheets and it all fell into place.

I drew captain planet a few times, and then just started cutting out shapes out of paper and felt till it looked right. I hand stiched all the felt together like one big patch and sewed it on the bag fabric. I stenceled the saying with paint first, and then hand stiched over all of it. Then I sewed on the recycling arrows to the fabric.

The pattern is a mix of plastic bag and the square bottomed jordy. It's rather large, as I tend to try to leave the stores with as few bags as possible. Cheesy

If you can't read the words, they say: BE A PLANETEER  and BRING YOUR OWN in the recycle arrows. Cheesy

Thanks for looking. I had fun making this, even tho it took way longer than I had liked.
