I sew in high heels...

This is my One less plastic bag tote!


This was after all the hard work...all I needed to do was sew it together.


After sewing....and breaking three needles on the canvas and almost breaking the computer by spilling water on the laptop mouse and breaking then fixing the sewing machine a few times.


Close up on the important message, the happy sun and the clouds that are in love.


Here are the recycling buddies and Mr. Earthworm


The nicest tree you'll ever see chillin with the Recycling buddies.


Mr. Seal cutting up those nasty plastic rings that hold six-packs of soda.....and yes, he's in a pond.....He decided he could hangout in the pond for a bit since it was for a good cause.


ACTION SHOT! Shopping at 11:00 at night. There was a police officer that kept watching as my boyfriend took pictures.


Maybe he thought I was stealing....or he just wanted to be on craftster too.


Once you see inside my bags, you see inside my soul.....haha


Alright......sooo....I have little sleeves inside that are detachable....this one has an ice pack in it! I take the bus everywhere and there is nothing worse then shelling out 6 bucks for icecream and having it melt! One can also be placed in the divider. I'm going to mostly use it to put fruit so it doesn't get all mashed up, or place in some batting to keep the cold to one side.


Pea pods on the sides. Cacti on the inside.


My wonderful bag!

Thanks for the great theme...we're all helping make a difference! Lets keep this going past the challange!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

RECYCLING BUDDIES ARE ADORABLE!  And your fabrics go together so well. 

Also great action shots - composition and styling are terrific.  You look like a professional model.

I LOVE THIS FABRIC! I am going to make a dress....but I didn't have the money to buy the fabric so when I made my bag I knew it would be the perfect trim!
