Ever since I made my first tote from the canvases that I did in Alisa Burke's Graffiti Chic class, I was hooked. I've made some more since, and is it ever easy!!
Here's another tote bag that I made for my friend, Sarah aka Original Youth, for a Christmas in July swap on iATCs. Her favourite things: turquoise, red, black, Eiffel Tower, poppies and sparklie goodness. What a gorgeous combo!
After that, I got brave, and made a purse of my own! With my own pattern yet!! It's even lined :) No zipper though, although in the picture I have a loop and button, but I have since put a snap button on the flap. I really like it. Very colourful, not too big, as I don't carry alot of stuff in purses and so totally me!
I even tried a wallet :) This one still has a few kinks to work out, but pretty good for my first try.
My daughter wanted a purse of her own. So I tried a hobo style. I got this pattern off of Crafster.org. (I'll post here who made the pattern once I look it up). I just cut it out, and Marlena painted it herself. Nice design, very Rock N' Roll :)
Then we gave my niece, Kahrisa a hobo purse for her birthday. She LOVED it!
Last, but certainly not least, I made these cute little graffiti inspired flower pins. So bright and fun!
I just love this look! So fresh, funky and fun! And the best part I like about it? Playing with the paint :)
