Brooklyn wanted a tote like everyone else a couple weeks ago. She has sewn a little bit and pretty much made the whole thing with some help. She drew the applique herself. It is a monster her and her friends created in 5th grade. His name is ZERN the monster and he has a black gun on his back and a green blade on his belly. The gun just shot a bullet and the blade has blood dripping off it. She made her tote extra fancy by getting a large wood button and painting it red, then I drew his name and title on it.
I designed these smaller than your average tote so little people could carry them without dragging them on the ground. Here is my son, R.J. sporting the crab tote. He is 12 months old. They're all made out of canvas. Durable, cute, and lower prices!
I only wish we lived near a beach.
My two nephews wanted in on the tote action once they saw Aubree's, so we slopped some together from the scraps we could scrounge around the house.
Mitchel's favorite animal is the penguin. The applique is pretty crappy, we only had white thread and a Hello Kitty sewing machine. Mitch was really excited to take his tote to church to carry his scriptures, paper/pencil, and a snack.
Bret's favorite animal is an elephant. He wanted it green, so we made the body of the bag out of gray corduroy. He held all the scraps in the tub up to his cheek before he picked out the fabric for the lining--gray flannel was finally soft enough for him. The ears fold forward off the tote and this one was the best quality. Both boys chose camo handles.
