20 bags…

Posted in Main, Sharing the Handmade Love at 4:55 am by carrie

As a gift for our friends Mike and Rachel, who are getting married this weekend, I painted 20 bags with green flowers to match their invitation.

I love these canvas tote bags. There is a pocket on the side for a water bottle and they are deep and sturdy with a nice gusset. M+R are going to fill them with stuff for their guests who are attending their destination beach wedding in Mexico.

I’ll be painting more of these with different designs and sticking them on the website, soon. If you would like to purchase a plain bag for $7.50 + shipping, please let me know! I have 70 of them :)

Congrats to M+R, coming home a mister and missus. Yay! :)

    Wow, these totes are amazing. These will be a huge hit and a treasure for all their guests. What was the process? Did you hand paint each? WOW
