Creative Space: Embroidered Tote

You may remember from ages ago some fabric that I was working on...
layering and embroidering, playing until it felt right. Well, I've finally 
finished it and have made it up into a tote for my shop.



I decided to use a black linen for the backing and it has an internal pocket
for keys and phones and things.




I'm trying to build up the stock for my shop, hoping that will make a difference.
I went to an Etsy shop critique meeting at the last Finders Keepers Market
and one of the things suggested to me was to build my numbers... apparently 
having 12 items in your shop is a magic number to being noticed ;)

There's loads going on with the My Creative Space and A Month Of memes over 
at Kidspot. Pop over there to find more creative spaces and join in the fun :)
