A terrific new site for crafters of all kinds -Whip up - is having a weekly contest. It also starts the mental archives playing Whip-it, whip-it good by Devo. But I was in university which makes me older than Melissa!
The theme this week is everday creativity.
I'm not a big purse person. I will use the same small purse for years. But I do need totes. Into the tote everyday goes the purse, my moleskine,daytimer, journals for work, magazines for lunch reading, the daily newspaper, assorted containers with food sometimes for 3 meals if I'm at work for 11 hours. I am affectionately known at home as the Queen of Leftovers and not the Leftover Queen!
I had this piece of decorator fabric I picked up at a thrift store for a couple of bucks. I love the design, the colours, the texture. How lovely it would be to have it with me everyday. I decided to create a new tote for spring & retire my corduroy one for now. It whipped up following instructions from make-it-easy. There was not much choice for webbing -blue or beige - I sewed it down with green thread for a little contrast.
