I started thinking... this tote is made out of canvas....canvas is so popular right now...I could use this canvas for something...
First, I cut the handles off to be used on a project later, then I cut the bag down the sides by the seams. I then turned it inside out and sewed again right beside those seams. I also stitched down the little flaps at the bottom of the bag. So far so good.
I cut out a design on my Cricut and used the outline as a template for my Santa. I used Martha Stewart's new paint from Plaid, found at Michael's. It is great paint!
Since I'm not the greatest seamstress, I just created an envelope style cover and stuffed it with stuffing. I folded over the top and tacked it down with pins, for it's temporary use over Christmas.
I've also gotta sneak in a picture of my little Indian from his class play last week! He did an awesome job with his lines!
