Phew, so much work has gone into this one! My first screen printed tote. I drew up the girl and leaf myself, tried to make it work with the funky vintage fabric as much as possible. I think it worked out pretty well Smiley Its lined with a pocket inside and has a vintage button w/ loop closure at the top!









Thanks for lookin! Wink

cool!!! I love the way you used the vintage print with the solid color - and the stencil is great too!! I wouldn't think of using those colors together but they set each other off perfectly - beautiful!!

Thank you both so much! I knew the printed fabric would be overwhelming on its own so the solid olive as the main body helps Smiley

love it, I have always wanted to learn to screenprint, the cost just seems so prohibitive.

Well the first time I screen printed (this was the second), I bought a kit for $50 I think, but you do need to get a few more supplies like a lamp, bulb and sheet of glass. So it is kind of pricey your first time, but after that you have everything you need to make more.
