I'd like to share a tote bag with you all that I created for my Sister Leila.  My Sister's birthday is coming up and I've been sewing bunches lately. I had created a pattern for a tote bag for another project and thought I would make my Sissy something fun to carry around.  She has decided to use this as a sort of everyday bag and plans on taking it to work too  Cheesy

Action Shot...



As you can see, it's quite large. The pattern on the bag is a combo of a couple Urban Threads embroidery patterns. I had some fun with it, used felt, and added eyebrows, lashes & switched up the hair a bit Wink to girlie it up just right!  I gave it to my Sister early because I was going to be back in California (I currently live in Las Vegas), and I rarely get to see when someone opens a present I handmade for them because I mail them all.

A Close-up, please excuse the shot.  It's the only close-up I took and it was with my dang camera phone.



C&C most welcome!  Thank you for looking!

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.
