I bought a boring old tote bag from Michaels, and some fabric from walmart, in order to create THE MANTIS.

I sewed the image on the patch using my sewing machine. And i patchworked on the camo splotches. It looks really rad, and holds a crap load of stuff.

Mantis' are so ugly, they are AWESOME.

Your mantis patch is awesome!  I love the look of the raw edges, too.

The mantis IS rad! Did you draw the mantis freehand on the fabric before stitching, or did you trace it from a picture?
