A nice little tote…….

Bags and totes are my all time favorites,  and it can be made as quick gifts too.  So this time for a quick finish,  I decided to make a girly tote.  As I have mentioned before, nowadays I am in love with embroidery and want to add a touch of embroidery in whatever I make. I am always inspired by the flickr embroidery group and now and then browse through them for some inspirations.  This particular embroidery on my tote is from there.  I loved the bunny in one of the finish and tried to draw it for transfer. Well I loved the result.  Here it is……


The tote is not from any particular pattern, I have just used a basic pattern but I wanted to have a zipered pocket inside  and also a magnetic clasp for closing.  And I have used D- ring for the sling strap. I have to thank Nima for getting me some magnetic clasps and D rings from India.  Thank you Nima, it was kind of you.




And here is the little embroidered bunny…. I have used simple back stitch and satin stitch for the eye.



One last look at my tote…..


I am happy with the finish and am planning to gift it to my close friend’s daughter.

Please  do send in your lovely comments. I eagerly wait after every post to see them. Hoping to come back with more crafty posts.  Take Care …. and Bye.
