Textile art


Tote I created using all kids of techniques. I like creating bags like this to take out shopping so I don't have to carry those ugly plastic bags.
I plan on making a ton of these but not quite as elaborate and time consuming.

Don't know if I'll make totes from scratch, but you've inspired me to embellish a few of the canvas ones that have become stained. I'm more impressed each day with your work and green with envy that you're so darn prolific!!

Your textile work/bag is drop dead gorgeous!!! You must get a lot of people looking at you as you pass by with works of art like this one.
