Tropical Totes

I think I’m going to post here more regularly to show off stuff I’ve made in my free time… like a crafty blog :) Last week I made a tropical blue tote to give to my best friend’s sister for her wedding to take on their honeymoon. I showed a pic of it to my mom who liked it a lot and commented that she and my dad are going to Florida in May. My mom’s birthday is at the end of April, so the timing is perfect… I decided to make her a tropical “Florida” tote bag for her birthday that she can take on their trip.

What do you think? Here’s the one I made last week that was given as a wedding present:

Not too bad, eh? The fun part is that this is just a slightly larger version (with longer handles) than most purses that I make. I keep talking about opening up an online shop that uses PayPal to handle the monetary transactions so that I can sell custom made purses and bags like this, but I never get around to finishing it. A site has been in the works for weeks. Oh, well. One day I’ll finish it. If you want to see all of my previous crafty creations, I’ve got a DeviantArt account you can browse.

I’ll post again when I’ve made some of my in-progress projects, like little stuffed lambs (we know 5 couples that are expecting right now) or a 2D version of the rabbids from Rayman Raving Rabbids, my favorite Wii game.

Until next time…
