|My DIY Printable fabric. I can't wait to print more!!|
I have been taking my embroidery floss to them. So much fun! And a good way to be productive while I am otherwise just sitting and watching tv. And I have found myself addicted to Investigation Discovery channel lately. Chris is a bit creeped out by my new favorite shows. He said that he will really be worried if I begin taking notes ;-)
Anyway...here is my first project. I printed out my girl from the vintage Russian postcard. I used denim fabric for the backing and embroidered the cloth straight to the denim.
|Here is my Russian Girl Tote.|
I embroidered with the intention of showcasing the different colors and the highlights in her hair. I bordered the fabric with blue bias tape.
|I embroidered her pink hair ribbon, blue dress and her brown hair with the golden highlights.|
|I also bordered the photo with the blue chain stitch.|
I lined the tote with this sweet blue floral sheet. The sheet is not-quite-vintage, I think its from the '90s. But so fun and sweet! And 100% cotton, my favorite material.
I created the tote straps with with the same blue bias tape that I framed the fabric with and the lining sheet fabric.
|I left the back plain.|
I'm loving this bag! I can't wait to make more.....
