I created these bags as gifts for the girls I'm 'lady advisor' for with the pageant I used to compete in. Naturally, the canvas totes came in a three-pack. So, I had to make one for myself. I mean, really, it would have been wasteful not to. I love the dark khaki color of the bag- it hides dirt really well.
It's pretty basic- some Iron-on adhesive and then topstitching for the branch and leaves. Following that, I did some freezer-paper stenciling (Google it, it's like ghetto-screen printing) for the bird. Each bag takes about half an hour, including dry time. I'm going to teach my sister-in-law how to do this soon, and will post a tutorial after.
