My originality knows no bounds... (I think to myself with a slight hint of sarcasm).
I've quite enjoyed turning scraps and odd ends into uncommon looking totes lately. And my ideas for more have been blooming! For this one, I used an old t-shirt from my cegep days. As a Fine Arts graduating parting gift, each student was asked to draw a 2x2 square illustration that best represented them (mine is the top right corner one; a doodle I'd been obsessively drawing at that time). The drawings were then compiled and silkscreen onto a white t-shirt. We all got to silkscreen our own, and mine has been in storage ever since. I haven't had much reason to wear it..
sewing it onto this tote with added decos like frilly frills and fringe has given it a new purpose while also allowing me to reminisce about those youthful days while I go about my errands.
And I do plan on making more! It's turning out to be a great way to express creativity and to use up the ridiculous amount of fabrics I've accumulated over the years.
