This week I chose to make a Christmas present more artsy ! I painted and embroidered a tote bag for my boyfriend because he likes reusable bags.

It turned out super cute and I enjoyed making it so much. I began with painting inside of the embroidery hoop to create a circle in the middle and did an ombre blue with green. I then accidentally splattered paint on the bag so i continued to make it look as if it was on purpose. I then chose a font and embroidered his nickname on to the bag.

Next time, I will try to do more embroidery and less painting.
