I know this is not the most creative project I ever did, but for some reason, I really loved it and had a hard time sending it out as a birthday gift in the March 2011 Birthday Swap. The link is where my partner posted that she had received her package from me.

I really enjoyed sewing, embroidering, stencilling, and designing the tote for my partner Mrs. Awesome Pants...she is a creative writer and this just seemed the perfect thing to make for her.

This is one side--a Reading Raven! Cheesy


The other side is a kitten trying to write...


My cats are always leaving paw print signatures around the house so this is what gave me the idea...


It was the first time I used any type of paint on fabric and I love it!

I thought I had posted this in the purses category, but I must not have---which is why I can post it now in this challenge! i just wanted to share one of my favorite projects with you guys.

Someday, I hope to make at least the kitten on another project just for me! Cheesy

This is such a cute bag! Love it! I could certainly use the reminder to write on my bag when I was out and about.

Thank you, all!

I am still a bit old-fashioned and love to go to the library...I think I will make myself a bag to lug home some good summer reading! Cheesy
