Tonight's Project...

EDIT: *If you want to see the whole group of entries, click this link HERE. I'm new to Flickr and for some reason my picture doesn't always show up in there, I think maybe only when I'm signed in? Maybe you'll see it though, it's fun to see all the other creations people came up with!
I actually started this a while ago and wanted to tell you to enter, but due to my severe procrastination problem I just finished it tonight- and it's the last day to enter. The Crafty Chica was having a fun contest to embellish a beach tote and I really wanted to do it. I've had this simple denim bag for a few years (Bath & Body Works gift) I scanned a vintage style Hawaiian postcard and enlarged it a bit and printed it on inkjet fabric from the Vintage Workshop. Then I wandered around my sewing room and craft stash till I found the ribbons and beaded trim and that gold flower from one of the girls old sandals and got busy sewing and glueing. I added some glitter around the image too, though you can't really tell in the picture. The girls were ooooo-ing and ahhh-ing over it before bed and asking when they could have a turn using it. After looking at the other entries in the contest I don't have much hope of winning a prize but it was fun having a challenge to make me do something!
