I made this for the Estatic about Eclipse Swap for juliminustheE. I thought I would share in honor of the opeing!


I purchased the tote at Hobby Lobby and then wrote a ton of quotes from the Eclipse Book all over it. There is at least one quote from each chapter. In bewteen each quote is a little heart or paw print if its Jacob.


It took about two hours but I thinks its cute and I like the subtleness of it.

What a fantastic idea!  I love the design, but figured at first glance it was fabric with writing on it already.  But your favorite book quotes!  With hearts between!  Bloody brilliant!!!  (Bit of a bibliophile over here <-  Tongue )

So I'm not a Twilight fan but I love the concept, a way to show your love without completely broadcasting it to everyone. And you have such pretty handwritting! I write like a guy so I could never pull this project off.

I really like it and am JEALOUS of your handwriting!  Very neat and pretty.  I love that it is subtle, as you said.  Cool idea. Smiley

Hmm, I concur about the handwriting in comments, mine's not that pretty... Hmm. Anyway- What did you use to write on the bag?  I like how thin the lines came out.  Everything I've brainstormed would be more thick and uneven.

Thanks for all the comments.

I used an industrial strength Sharpie! Its supposed to be permenant on practically any surface even through chemical washes. I'd be nervous to wash it despite their claims.
