Paint Party Friday and Rasz Bagz

Happy Paint Party Friday everyone,
and THANK YOU for stopping by.
I have not been participating very often and I miss all of you!

And an EXTRA Thank you to Kristin and Eva
for keeping this going on, for about 7 1/2 years now!
You two ROCK!!!

I have been busy and very tired for a while,
and have gotten a few things done.
Here are two of the latest Rasz Tote Bagz I have made:



Both of these Rasz Tote Bagz are sewn from natural color canvas, hand painted and embellished with flowers made from leftover painted canvas fabric and a little painted lace to give it a "vintage" look.
Both are approximately 12"x13.5"x2.5" with 2 14" straps.

I was also compelled to make a large book bag for one of the sweetest young ladies I know. She saw my 8 year old, beloved tote I still use all the time and mentioned she needed a large, extra sturdy book tote. She is so sweet and helpful to everyone that I wanted to gift her something.
I created it from what I knew of her:


Isn't she the cutest? I did get her permission to post this picture.

(before the pocket was sewn in):

I've found that Liquitex Matte Medium works great for keeping pieces of fabric together prior to sewing them down. I love this new way instead of pinning which can make thick fabric ripple.
Always nice to learn new tricks!

That's it for me creating and painting lately.
Hoping you are having a GREAT Paint Party Friday.

Big hugz, Rasz
