Today is my grandmother's 85th birthday, and I wanted to give her something, so I used freezer stencils(thanks, Craftster videos!) and seed beads to decorate a medium sized tote.



Her name is Irene, so I stenciled the I on there. I was thinking of writing Nana on it, but I changed my mind.
And I was going to put 4 flowers on it, but I think it would have been too crowded.
What do you think?

And here are some close-ups of the beaded flowers.

I hope she likes it!

Very pretty!  I bet she will love it - you obviously put a lot of work into it, and it came out great!

What a lovely present idea! Grandmas always love the stuff that their grandchildren make them, but this is a truly extra-special gift.  Wink
