I've only been on crafster for a couple months, and everything on here is SO inspiring. I've made bags for a long time, but this site has definitely improved my arsenal of embellishment tricks!  All these bags are "Knitters totes" with room for patterns, needles and notions!

So here they are, in no particular order:

Pink Lady Tote: My first tote using an iron on transfer!  She's ironed on white canvas, then appliqued on.  


Alpaca Love Tote:  My first stencil of all time!!!!!  I could hardly keep myself from ripping off my stencil as soon as I painted it!!  Major Thanks for all the craftsters tutorials on this one!!


Felt Tree: Before I came here I had no idea how amazing felt could be! I'm in love now!


South west Sunset:  Yet more felt love! I love how the felt gives depth to an applique


Vinyl Silk Flowers:  I had never used iron on vinyl in a decorative way before! I can remember where I saw this idea, but whoever came up with it is a FRICKING GENIUS!!  Silk flowers are stuck to fabric with iron on vinyl, then I free-formed stitched the petals for decoration.  After that, I appliqued the flowers onto the bag. I was a little sad that the iron on interfacing didn't do so good for this bag. I may have to keep this bag for myself Smiley



Vinyl silk flowers with Buttons:  I have always loved buttons, but I became obsessed with them when doing the obsession swap! My partner was obsessed with them, so I embellished a bag for her with buttons. Now I'm obsessed. Same technique as above, but button centers instead of stitched centers for the flowers.



Thank you very much for looking!!  I love this site and the people on it SO much!

Really beautiful!  I have the orange/red/gold stripe fabric.  I lined a placemat purse with it and made a cushion for a kitchen chair out of it.

You have lovely ideas and you've executed them so well!
