painted jeans

This was my first attempt at using handmade stencils and fabric paint to make something unique! I bought these paints at JC Penny for twenty bucks, and they were nice, and a darker green.

reversible floral tote bag

My first successful bag! Okay, kinda cheating because two of these pieces were already bags, but horrible ugly drawstring bags I kept make up in. I adapted  them into a cute, reversible tote! I had a third bag that I used to make the straps, and it came out pretty darn good!
