I finally did it. I decided I would take a shot at Sankari's Verve Recycle Re-Use Re-Purpose challenge, so tonight after dinner I began digging through my cupboards/ closets to find something to 're-use'.
I came across a collection of canvas totes that I have never used and knew that it needed a facelift.
I received a beautiful card from a friend of mine a few weeks ago and on it was a pretty crocheted flower that she had made herself. Since I have crocheted for years I decided that if a beginner crocheter could make a flower, then so could I. Well, they came in handy for this project.
I stamped my leaves with the set Inspired by Nature, using Mellow Moss craft ink. Next I added corduroy buttons to the center of my flowers and used a hot glue gun to attach to the tote.
Next I stamped my word 'Inspiration' to the top of my tote using Really Rust craft ink. The reason I stamped inspiration is so that I can hang the bag near my workspace and any ideas I come across that I wish to try in the next month I can print (or tear out of a magazine) and place in my Inspiration tote.
Next I added a few more corduroy buttons to the front of the tote and finally I added some matching grosgrain ribbons around the handle.
Now I have a cute little tote bag that I can enjoy and put to good use.
Thanks for a great challenge Sankari. I really enjoyed it.
Thanks for stopping by.
