here's a tote i made. the anchor stencil didnt turn out quite like i wanted it to so i splattered some white paint on it for fun and sewed it up anyways.

before washing

after washing i forgot to heat set it and the paint was a bit thick so it peeled off. it's alsoa  bit wrinkly cause i haven't irone it yet. the picture looks a bit weird..

inside..i guess it's reversible?


so i wanted a smaller wallet..

front..there's an elastic strap..


inside.. 2 credit card pockets and one for my id card..

money pocket


this one i made with pfeffermint_ish's tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16741222.0 but i made it bigger..it was practice for the actual one i wanted to make


and lastly this is the actual one i wanted to make..but i haven't sewed on the trim/straps (they're just pinned, and i'm going to make the straps longer) cause i'm not sure if i'm happy w/ the yellow.. the lining is already that yellow so i'm not sure if i'm just going to stick w/ it or take it out. any color suggestions?

thanks for looking  Smiley

I love them all. Your work is wonderful, and the faded paint just looks more rustic and I think I like it a bit faded. The green is beautiful and the yellow one is so girly and pretty

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think...(Christopher Robin) 

it'll be ok in the end. if it's not OK, it isnt the end

lovely bags and wallets.
you could always redo/touchup the fabric paint and heat set after it drys 24-48hrs.
but if you like the look leave it.
thanks for sharing your work.
