The idea was to make or buy a canvas tote, and then stuff it with fun things. It could be Halloween themed, but didn't have to be. I bought a tote and stamped with some paint, and added a fun iron on. I didn't embellish too much, because I wanted the bag to be functional- meaning, not getting caught on things. Unfortunately, I scorched the iron on a little, but I didn't want to throw the bag out. I'm hoping after she uses it a few times, the overall vintagey feel of the bag will hide the brown marks.
I filled it with a bat garland, a paper and pom pom garland with a brass stencil, game cards, candy, Martha Stewart magazine, Halloween candles, fun old linen doilies, old needlepoint, and a cool dress pattern rose pin that I made.
Kath received her bag yesterday, and wrote to say that she loved it. That makes me happy.
