Bag Lady

I decided to make some totes for 30 ladies that are going to Women of Faith in September.  We're going to give them their tickets and information in totes made just for them.  I'm using these Martha bags as inspiration.  You can find the directions here.  Since I'm making thirty, I'm keeping it simple.  
Here are the samples I made for my daughter and me.
I loved these simple totes from Michaels. Their in the kid craft section on $2.00 a piece.

The most difficult part was flipping the letters.  Even though it was an obvious option on my software, it wouldn't enable me to flip them.  My smart DD2 figured it out for me.  We worked around it.
What do you think?  Wouldn't you enjoy receiving a simple little bag like these?


  1. i would love it! and so will those lucky ladies. that's a great idea to use the bags from michaels too instead of sewing 30 of them. good job.

  2. What a cute and fun project. I bet the ladies will love them! :-)

  3. That is a wonderful idea! Your ladies will love them. What a sweet gesture. We used those same bags for a craft project in my MOPS group a number of years ago and I still use it. I love how you are personalizing them too.

  4. such a lovely touch adding the elegant black initials. the 'k' looks like it was lettered with a vintage typewriter, just perfect!


Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. Please say hello while you are here. It would be so wonderful to meet you.
