I have used a yellow material with a delicate leaf and flower design to create the bag. Inside I used a pink spotted material as lining with blue edging. On one side, I embroidered, "Hoot Hoot I'm So Cute" with appliqued butterflies and on the other, an owl sitting on a flowering branch: all with embroidery thread. I chose the materials for their colours and flowers so creating a warm and peaceful feel to the design. I love sparkly things, so I have added sequins to the design to capture and reflect the light.

Hoot Hoot hand sewn applique tote bag
All my designs are one of a kind using applique and embroidery. They are hand crafted and take many hours to complete. I use a variety of materials, mostly cotton and polycotton and I repurpose some of the patterned materials within the designs. The embellishments and embroidery thread are new.
Personalisation: If you like my designs but want something more personal, I can work with you to create the design you want within your budget. Please email me.
Uses for the bags
The obvious use is for shopping but I have other ideas.
Clothes storage: Use the bag to store pyjamas or a nightie or other more personal items. The bag can then be placed on a shelf or in a drawer ready to be easily brought out and placed on the bed or in luggage.
Treasures or trinkets: I have made one for each of my children and they store the items from their last day at school.
