I had a premade totebag that needed a little feminist love. Red just seemed to pop, so that is what I went with. The stencil is from stencilry...not my design.

I do get some stange looks at the grocery store. I'm liking it and gets my feelings out there!

That is so awesome!

I have a friend who is going to be moving away soon, and this is the perfect gift.  I hope you don't mind if I copy it?

Edited to add: But I looked on stencilry.org, and I couldn't find it.  I dug through what seemed to be reasonable subjects, and turned up empty.  Any help?

Please copy away! I will look for the stencil and see if I can find it. If it is not there, I'll try to point you in the right direction!

Edit: You are right. I can't find it on stencilry either. It may have been there before it was updated and all. I did find another one online from the website stencil punks. There is tons of other stencils there, but I haven't used them.

That is awesome. It looks v professional, and I love the message behind it. Not to mention that you are saved from plastic grocery bags.

Thanks for comments! I am trying to get away from plastic bags entirely, so this bag is in my usual grocery store rotation.

I like the feminist messge too! It has started some good discussions!

you just made my day, literally! i just wore my newly-decorated feminist shirt for the first time yesterday, and all  day long i got puzzled looks from people. lots of people  asked me about it, too, and i had some cool random conversations. (the shirt has a coat hanger with the no-smoking symbol over it...its a pro choice thing)
back to my point....i love the bag!!

I would love to see your new shirt! It sounds like it is fab. I would wear it with pride!

I have a shirt with the same stencil as the bag and that receives far fewer comments.

I brought sexy back, and all I got was store credit.
