Tote Bag

Hello! Been some time since I posted something. My mojo which went missing last week is still not found. So, I’ve been whiling away the time. Meanwhile here’s something I did…I think last month. Noticed the name of my blog..ends with ‘etc’? This post here belongs to the ‘etc’ part. The other 99% of my blog posts belong to the part before the etc, which is card-making! πŸ™‚

PurseSo, my sister and I wanted to do a joint project using our incredible, absolutely amazing fabulous talents πŸ˜‰ And this is the first of what is, hopefully, many more to follow.

Time to get a bit more realistic now – I stitched this tote using my completely basic stitching knowledge (I can only stitch straight lines, and that is if you discount the 95% of the times it goes haywire! :P). My sister came up with a beautiful circular motif she crocheted. More about that on her blog post here. My job was to somehow attach it to the purse. Before starting I added the big one in the center – its actually a cheap ring I had bought, I straightened the ring and used it like a brad. And I remembered about our big stash of beads which we had bought to make some jewelery projects – and which I haven’t touched ever since (not, my sis though – she has come up with pretty amazing stuff here. I borrowed my Ma’s needle and thread and started joining the motif with the purse using the beads to tie them up, using whatever amateur stitching skills I have (trust me, I am thankful the stitches are completely covered by the beads!! :D). Thankfully, the design came out pretty good! πŸ™‚

Now, waiting for an opportunity to use it! πŸ™‚
