I made this for my partner in the Andrew Lloyd Webber swap Cheesy

The quote is from one of the songs in the musical, and the image was inspired by this piece of deviant art http://UndeadPrincess.deviantart.com/art/Phantom-Zone-Caution-16076415

It was my first attempt at freezer paper stencilling and the lovely Noxika sent me some for this project...thank you!!!

It didn't turn out super-neat, there were little wrinkles in the paper after ironing that I couldn't get out.

I'm very happy with the sewing of the tote though Cheesy I used a blue rose fabric for the lining, and a navy blue for the pocket. Blue to match the image on the front, and roses, well...for phantom Cheesy

Comments and CC appreciated xo

I have to say I envy your sewing skills so much - your tote turned out so much better than my attempt, lol.  So neat and *straight*  Embarrassed Tongue   The lining is so pretty and the stencil work turned out really good! The little stick man image and quote is cute, I've not seen it before!

Your partner was very lucky to land you (I speak from experience!  Cheesy).
