Crafty Freaks #1 - little minx hand dyed Tote Bag

Right – so here is my first submission for Crafty Freaks, I’m a little bit excited! Here is my story – every time I go to Typo I opt to buy one of their calico bags, and every time I get home from Typo someone takes my bag and I never see it again. Well that’s not wholly true – I see it again when it falls apart from use and love, and I get to re-make it. So I thought for my first Crafty Freaks project it was time I cut out the middle man and made myself some darn-toting bags! I blended this idea with my long wish to dabble with fabric printing, and my absolute love of the simplicity of handmade stampers such as potato prints.

And this is the outcome. As you can see I have a bit of an obsession with cross shapes, and at the last minute decided I would also try some dip-dying with the fabric which has taken up my evenings for most of the week. What went right? I am loving the softly hand-stamped uniqueness of this. What went wrong – I love the idea of hand painted words, but it would seem that I do not posess that particular skill.
