You guys, I am on a serious turn-paintings-into-bags kick!
I took four painted canvases and pulled them off of their frames. Then I got to stitching. It was really tough. The two flower paintings are both collage based and not very flexible. But, it was worth the struggle (you'll see where I had to a bit of hand stitching to make the seam work)!
To add a little New York grit, I lined the inside of the bag with NYC subway fabric:
I love my new tote bag and cannot wait to start carrying it!
I have a feeling there aren't going to be many painted canvases hanging around my house for long...I'm going to be pulling them all apart to make bags!
Thanks for stopping by!
