Tim Holtz and Ticking for a Tote

Completed Bag

Tim's Stamp
Flowers and Lace

Ticking and Ribbon
Love all the texture
I took a tote that was in the closet for ages. Turned it inside out and started making embellishments.
Tea dyed and coffee dyed ticking and muslin.
Perfect Pearls misted some seam binding.
Make rolled flowers from strips of muslin and ticking and misted seam binding.
Gathered some strips for posies, and of course included pom palms.
Used vintage and Jenny Bowlin buttons.
Stamped with a favorite Tim Holtz stamp on muslin.
Layered with burlap and stitched all together.
I have just used this little tote over and over.
