My Totebag

Some time ago, the guild sponsored a class taught by Melissa, one of our talented members. We were to give her pictures that we would like to have on a totebag and she had them put on transfers which we later transferred to fabric.
You will probably recognize all of these pictures except maybe the one above which I don't believe I have posted before. It's a sweet picture of Nan, my mom.
This is one side of the bag. I used old lace, buttons and other trim to embellish my piece.

The other side of the bag. I don't think I did the bottom quite right as it sags, but that's okay - it works anyway. Here is a close look at the fabric, old buttons and lace. A fun bag to do - however, I don't carry it anywhere since it is kind of special and I want to preserve it. (Click to enlarge)

I so enjoy your postings of the old family pictures--and the close up of them when I 'click' on them. The picture quality is very good. Keep up the good work Carol...and I'm loving the Peroia embroidery flower patterns--especially the notes that are written at the bottom of each flower. Another embroidery quilt project for me...thank you : )

I see your granddaughter(s) in this lovely picture of your mom, I think?!

Carol I remember that bag - very pretty - I don't blame you for keeping "nice" - but you need to bring and share with our new Guild members! J (3 more nights and I'm out of here!)
