Calvin's been a little under the weather lately, so I made this bag this weekend to bring him a smile. He was on a big clown-drawing kick a few months back, and I saved this drawing to do something with. I embroidered his clown (with minor editorial adjustments, which I don't usually do), added some buttons for balloons, and turned it into a tote. So here's his new clown bag, for holding his favorite treasures. Right now it's holding his toilet paper roll collection (oh yes, it's a collection!).
I can't seem to stop embroidering these past few weeks (more finished stuff coming to the blog later this week)--there's something so soothing about it to me, and I'm falling in love with the sound of the needle and thread coming through the fabric--it's so satisfying. Does anyone else know what I'm talking about? ;)
