serenity of the soul tote (now listed in etsy!)


I have been having fun today making little totes from my painting serenity of the soul. This recent painting that I did makes me feel all peaceful so decided to make fabric copies of it and make a little tote surrounded by favourite fabric, vintage lace, vintage buttons and hessian..I really like the shabby look of hessian and the texture of it along with the hand sewing using crochet thread. I wanted the tote to be a bit more substantial so lined it with some pale green hand dyed fabric. I have made two so decided to put one on etsy...
