Hey there! So nice to see you today.

Here is one of the displays I kept coming back to at Stitch Fest:

They are simple canvas bags made beautiful with
stencils, iron-on transfers, applique and embroidery.
Definitely a blah to TADA! project, which inspired me to do this:

I found this bag in my closet over the weekend.
It was a freebie from a magazine.
I thought I could add some more personality
to it even if it was already TADA!

These images from the internet got me all excited.

I used the bag as a canvas for some sketching.
If you aren't confident with your drawing skills,
you can transfer your chosen images to the
bag using some carbon or transfer paper.

Use a permanent marker to define your design.

TADA! -- my official summer tote bag!
Woot! Woot!
