My hand-painted tote bag, off to Vegas!

It’s done! I’ve been wanting to get some fabric printed to make custom tote bags, but I never have time to finish the graphics. Since I wanted to bring something fun with me to the POOLTRADESHOW to promote Yummy You this coming week, I just bought a plain bag at Michael’s and some fabric paint and went to town! I’m really happy with how it turned out, considering it’s all free-handed. Painting was very relaxing! I had to mix my own blue, so I’m kinda bummed you can see some inconsistencies in color, but….for having worked on this while packing up the loft to move next Sunday….I’m pretty proud! I still want to install a zipper in it. Ideally a pocket, too, but who am I kidding?! We still need to pack and move more stuff to the new house tonight, and I still have to pack my suitcase! When does a gal get to paint her nails?! 😛

If any buyers read my blog and are going to the tradeshow to shop, my booth is #911. Easy to remember! 🙂

I’m not sure how much I’ll have a chance to blog while I’m away. I get REAAAAALLLY tired at stuff like this. I’m used to being home alone all day with the dogs, so being super social is really taxing! 😛 I might Twitter some pics here and there. We’ll see!!!

    I can’t believe you hand painted that – it looks awesome!! They would be awesome to sell your stuff in 😀 And I can relate to the whole getting tired at social things… it took me a while to get back into the swing of being social after I started working from home. Hope the event goes well!!

    I love that painted bag! I’ve been feeling inspired about the idea of fabric painting, lately, so it’s nice to see how fabulously it can turn out. Thanks for the pics, and I hope your trip to Vegas was amazing.
