http:// I would tote your tote! I lived in New Mexico for 10 years and love the religious icon things! I now live in the bible belt and would love to carry something around like that! I would get looks of incredulous disbelief and many would pray for me. But then these people stare if you wear loose linen pants and a tee-shirt!

I was just curious how you got the shapes to put her together?  did you use a stencil or was it just freehand?  Iwould like to give it a whirl but i feel like i couldn't make those pieces on my own without a pattern.


i drew it out on paper first, and just pretty much cut the shapes out w/ the paper, sorta like a stencil, and then i just started free handing the rest of the shapes.

For all you girls dying for an our lady bag (or any other pic that you can't find on fabric) -- there is a great instruction book called Crafty Bags.  It has instructions for making bags out of pictures and iron on vinyl.  the first one i made was out of an our lady calendar i bought at walmart last year (they have them again, btw, for like $5).  i followed the instructions for the first one, now i have made my own up and use fabric for lining.  it's a GREAT idea, and there are people selling these on the web for $50+!!!  check out it!

I went to Catholic school for preschool and kindergarden... I guess it was too early for pinching, I just remember the horrors of being forced to sit up straight.

Your applique came out gorgeous: I can't believe you freehanded it.  The BVM would be pleased I'm sure.

Would you consider making up an extra and trading or selling it to me?  I sense a need for a blessed knitting bag.

I wish I went to a Catholic school, but I'm stuck in public school.

that is absolutely fantastic, gorgeous choice of colours. good job!

i kinow what you mean about sneers though. religion's a bit of a dodgy area, i think. i've ben tempted to make stuff before but always chickened out! i've got stuff in my bedroom but i don't know if i'd be brave enough to carry a bag around (even one as gorgeous as yours)...

Religious or not.... don't ever worry about what other people think.... its not worth your time, and if you really like something and have a passion for it, then go for it!  Smiley
