I found this image from vintage wallpaper and decided to make a totebag.

Very nice.  I even like the color of the tote, kinda tea stained and vintagey. Where did you get the pic of the vintage wallpaper? Or do you just own it.

Thanks! I actually found the picture on the net. The pattern is crazy with all sorts of birds going everywhere and looking very angry.

Beautiful work.  I really like the design.  Out of curiousity, did you have to use stabilizer?

The totebag was so thick that I didn't. I used 4 strands of thread so it's thick but not too bulky

That looks great.  I've been obsessed with cherry blossoms since watching "Memoirs of a Geisha" so maybe I should try doing something like this project.
