Hey all

Just figured I'd post my recent projects. The picture quality isn't that great, so I apologize in advance. The actual bags are far more colourful. Everything got washed out due to crappy cameras.

For Christmas, I decided to make my dear friend a bag. Well, then I got lazy, and decided to decorate one instead. Here's part of her gift:



For those of you who are unfamiliar, that is Delirium from the Sandman comics. My dear friend adores the character and relates to her. I then embellished the image with beading (which you can't see *sigh) and some sequins. Here's the original image.

I then made a gift for me Smiley Same stuff as above, really. I have yet to really p;lay with it though. It's Mucha's Poesie/Poetry with a quote which reads: "Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting with the gift of speech" by Simonides.

Those are really cool! I love them both! How did you do the image transfer? Was it the t-shirt transfer paper that you print out and then iron on? That is really a neat Idea. I hope that your friend likes that! If not, You can send it to me;p

Thanks so much Smiley It's a store bought transfer that you print on with an ink jet printer. I wish I had kept the packaging because I had a few issues with the product (mainly, you need the highest setting on the iron for it to set, but that burns the canvas until you keep the iron moving at all times, even then, it sometimes doesn't set the transfer properly. Also, the transfer is very thick and very noticable. It's fine on the canvas, but I wouldn't recommend it for a T-Shirt).

Hee Smiley I hope she likes it too.

I simply adore Mucha. I plan on making some of my own totes and using better transfer sheets to make more. Thanks Smiley
