My First Tote!

My girlfriend and I got together last week and she helped me make my first tote! It was a bit of a gong show, but it finally came together. I used the bag to pull the colours from to make the tote and card. The flower from S.U. 's Ginormous Flowers was a perfect match to the one on the bag. Here is Leslie Miller's tutorial for the tote that I made. Colours are Purely Pomegranate and Black by S.U. You can't see it in the picture, but the black part of the tote is covered in black seed beads (click on picture to get a better view). Time consuming, but it looks like a beaded purse. I used crystal effects to adhere the beads to the tote. This set went to my Mom for her 51st Bday!
