More Embellished totes

Tuesday, November 30, 2010
My aunt asked me to make her some more of these canvas totes. She's going to put her grand kids' presents in them- how cute is that? So, since she is a major animal lover, I pulled out this cute cat print to make a couple of the bags. Then, I've always wanted to try the ruffle version- and I have to say it turned out darling. I think that's what my daughter will be getting this year! And the purple flowers are so fun- I used a dark purple corduroy and the light purple floral print. I'm going to be making a scripture tote using these fabrics in the next day or two- love them!

Here is a detail shot of the flowers with the cat fabric as the centers. I think they turned out so cute!
These are seriously the easiest gift- I made all five of them this morning in less than 2 hours. And that's with kids running all over and getting my two oldest out the door.
If you need any ideas or would like any of the templates I used for the shapes (the flowers or the shapes seen here) leave a comment or send me an e-mail and I would be happy to get them to you. Please make sure your e-mail is included if you're a no-reply blogger so I can send them somewhere!
Happy Christmas Crafting everyone!

They are really cute! Did you make the whole tote or just the embellishments? I'd love a template ... been looking for something to make for my niece this year!
