butterfly and bird tote

I am blown away by all the wonderful and encouraging comments everyone has left on the giveaway post! Wow. I feel so special! If you haven't commented yet, you've still got time! I'm not picking a winner until the 15th (next Wednesday). So, go back to the giveaway post and enter to win!

I just finished this tote bag today for my sweet neighbor, Dee. I really liked how it turned out! A lot of you commented about how much you liked this butterfly fabric. Well, here's what I did with it. I appliqued a bird on the front of the bag with some vintage ticking. I cut it with pinking shears and just stitched around the bird, leaving a little fray around the edges. I love this look. Very shabby chic! And I lined the bag with solid brown cotton. A very versatile bag and roomy too! Be on the lookout for more like this in my shop. I'll be listing some soon!
Have a blessed weekend! He is RISEN! Thank you, Lord!
