I came across this blog Lucy's Lampshade that pictured a cute hand painted canvas rigger bag. I wanted to create a canvas tote bag so I ordered three rigger bags from Harbor Freight and oil paints and paint brushes from Dick Blick. I kept one and gave the other two canvas bags along with the paints and paint brushes to my daughters who are wonderful artists. Everyone can use a craft bag that you can tote around, right? Especially one that you get to paint and has TWENTY-FOUR POCKETS to hold all of our stuff! It is the perfect size for supplies I need when I am working on small projects.
I pencil sketched a design and started painting a little at a time. I got my inspiration from looking at several of Mercer Mayer' s 'Little Critters,' children's books. All three of my kids grew up reading these books. :)
What a hectic morning we had. First all nine of us are trapped inside this big box. We cried for Help but no one heard us!
Finally, after removing the plastic bags over us and hopping out of the box we escaped. Now we need to hide before Miss Connie finds us. Shhh......
Run everybody Run! We just heard Miss Connie say she was going to shoot all of us individually! Oh my goodness.....run for your lives!
Oh silly us! Miss Connie is not going to shoot us.....hehehe....she is going to take individual photographs of us. Whew...what a relief, huh? Look for our individual photographs tomorrow in the Clothmatters Etsy shop.
