Wabi-sabi shabby tote
Stopping in to share something I made last week. Our Creating Outside the Book club members were each given a tote bag in April and were tasked to decorate them to use to bring home our monthly kits. I had so many ideas from dying it to adding ruffles and more. I came across some bits of fabric I had picked up at a previous meeting and went from there with the imperfect layers, embroidery floss and buttons. Despite having a sewing machine I love, this one seemed to call for some hand sewing. It's intentionally wabi-sabi in a shabby chic/primitive way. What do you think?
