It has been a while since I did a creative project. I haven't done any painting, scrapbooking, sewing or anything like that. But, since today's blog theme is "Creativity Weekend" - I thought I better do something. Quick.
I know making tote bags are generally simple and quick. So, I thought I'd give bag-making a go again. And, this is the product (see picture) - a fancy floral tote bag.
The construction is pretty similar to the last bag I made a few months ago. Except this one's bigger, and I added a front pocket in this one + a band. I like it.
I'm not sure though if I'm keeping it, giving it away as a gift, or selling it.
My sister has been encouraging me to do more of these creative projects - and start selling them. She's even offering to sell some of my projects for me, if I wish. But, I don't know yet. I mean, sure, I'm happy to sell a thing or two every now and then via Etsy or directly. But, we'll see.
For now, I'm just happy to be able to have the time and energy to create something nice once in a while.
Anyway, I hope you're all having a good weekend!
