Two of them! I made them today. And since I bought some tags for my company a while back I've been putting tags on EVERYTHING I make, haha! Cheesy Love these blue fabrics, my bank account is going to be subzero in a few months if I can't keep this focus of not buying EVERYTHING I like.. There just are too many adorable and awesome fabrics out there!!

I LOVE these! Great looking totes! Love the fabric and the embroidery!

thank you! the fabric with the leaves is one that i bought from US, actually. it wasn't too expensive. the other, which is a bit cooler looking since it's more abstract, is from Finland and costs an arm and a leg. i'm actually starting to wonder how much trouble it would be to dye my own fabrics.. Cheesy since the white cotton is only 4-5 euros/metre and the cool looking fabric was something like 20 eur/m, and it's not as wide as white cotton would be. the piece that i bought was just enough for that one bag! smallest piece ever.. but it IS a gorgeous fabric.

Dying fabric is actually quite easy, but the results can range from awesome to really horrible quite easily:)  I also like to print on fabric with rubber or linoleum stamps and regular fabric paint. Also, spoonflower isn't that cheap, but you can get a yard (which is almost a meter Smiley ) for less than 20$ (including shipping to Europe), and you can design it yourself!(or you can buy UT designs that match their embroidery designs). I know how hard it is to find nice and cheap fabric in the EU Smiley)

yeah, i've been aquaintanced to spoonflower, and have thought of making my own fabric (since watching Project Runway <3 ). the UT fabrics aren't that great, i like more abstract pictures on my fabrics. Smiley
