Embroidered Tote

And here's the final result of my first embroidery attempt.



Of course I had to incorporate it into a tote and I love it! Well, I'm not that much in love with the cat but rather I'm in love with the possibilites of embroidering stuff and sticking it on a tote bag.

I used my friend Heat'N'Bond to attach the embroidered cat to a piece of polka dot cotton and then used Heat'N'Bond to attach it to the tote front. I did a running stitch around both and then proceeded to make the bag.

You put the kitty in the perfect place - a bag! There are so many possibilities with embroidery. Have you seen people embroider words onto quilt blocks? Beautiful. And look at you with your new banner. You did that, too, didn't you.
