I love it when you have a project in mind and you find the perfect fit for it in your overwhelmingly excessive stash. Problably not that surprising since your stash is... overwhelmingly excessive. This tote is made from a recycled sewing attempt, vintage thread, paint and markers and rope that I already owned. Made to carry anything and everything.

I decided to go tongue-in-cheek with this challenge, so there's a little less green and blue than there would and/or should be. I mean it more as a tribute and an eye-opener, but with a subtle message with handwritten lettering and a simple image.



Mars--it's really not that great!

Earth--it really is!!

Thank you for looking Smiley

LOVE this bag! The image of the Earth over that red looks so bleak. ((But the outlines themselves look so good!))

I would freak if I saw someone using this as a reusable shopping bag and probably try to steal it.

Great twist on the Earth-theme! Grin What a funny idea, I love it.

This is Wonderful! I hope you don't mind but I'm totally making something with this image and words. It's too good not to have it everywhere, you should print shirts! I'd buy one...

I'm glad that the bag has inspired you both! I don't mind if you guys snag the image or saying, but I was thinking of tweaking it to sell reusable grocery or whatever totes eventually, so if you could not sell the bag you make I would appreciate it Smiley  If it goes that far I'll be putting the design under a creative commons copyright, so I'm not all that torn up about it either way, it's all for a greater good right?
