Folk Art Tote Bag


alrighty I promised a better picture of my newest tote, I did it in a folk art design, Lately I have been loving pictures of cats and cows and mice , Just some thing so "Home" about them,

Close up showing cat and cow, I have to say
I do like how well the aging on this tote bag turned out,


I used gesso and then....pastel chalk, water color pencils and charcoal, and sealed with a sealant.
I made my first pincushion. The round one, I used a wonderful pattern by www.purlbee.com/very-easy-pincushions/Thank You purlbee for creating this wonderful tutorial!!The heart pattern is my own and I am playing learning how to use colors, fabrics, stitches, felt, wool. practice practice and more practice!
