A snowy Sunday in spring... Lesson plans were done for the coming week and then I took some time to do a little stitching.
I stitched out this awesome embroidery a while back. I love the message! It is an Urban Threads design. I LOVE their embroidery designs!! There are so many cool designs to choose from!
This particular design reminds me a little of my students. Back when I taught German I had mostly male students. Now I have a lot more female students with my new job in FCS. After listening to some of the things my girls deal with, I hope they can take that message to heart and realize that they need to be happy from within before someone else can contribute to their happiness.
Originally I had planned to make a zipper pouch out of it. I looked at it today and thought I would make a drawstring bag with the pink fabric around the top and for the lining, but sadly I realized I didn't have enough denim to do that. So, I came up with a bucket tote instead.
I had my heart set on using a bright yellow zipper to make a pocket on the outside of the drawstring bag, but since that just wasn't to be I still used the yellow zipper as the handles of the tote. I really love how it turned out. Not too bad for not having a pattern. I put a layer of fusible fleece behind the denim to help it keep it's shape.
I love how my yarn fits in it nicely. It'll be a great little project basket. Maybe I should set it on my desk at school for a little while.
