Arty Girlz Challenge



The challenge this week was to alter something and it just so happens that is what we were doing at Craft Class so here is my altered bag. It is a supermarket bag and had a big green love heart on it and writing- should really have taken a piccy of it before so you could see the difference.


Anyway it involved a lot of sewing and I am not really a great sewer but gave it a go anyway

As you might have guessed it is a dog themed bag now-no surpirse there then

Quite pleased with how it turned out though

looking forward to craft class tomorrow we are making jewellery- that will be a first for me and I am looking forward to it- oh dear I feel another obsession maybe coming on!

I would proudly carry this tote everywhere I went! If I could sew half as good as you, I would be altering all of my canvas grocery bags. Thank you for the inspiration.
