This project was created for Craft Us Crazy Challenge. The challenge actually started Thursday, January 3rd. I was unable to post my project till now due to an unfortunate accident I had on Christmas Eve. I fell on some ice at my parent’s house and had severe back pain due to it. Thank goodness it is finally starting to feel much better that I was able to climb stairs to my craft room to take pictures. Now onto the challenge that ends Wednesday, January 16th. The challenge is an “Inspiration Photo and/or Something New”. There is also a brand new sponsor, Ginger Blossom Designs.

Not only are we drawing inspiration from the picture above, but our prize for you this week is made with the fabric in the picture!!!! Below is a SAMPLE ONLY of the tote bag you will receive if you're the lucky winner!!
It measures 14" across and 16" top to bottom ( not including handles)
