The girls were the first intended recipients of my embroidery work. I found a pattern for a t-shirt tote bag in the first embroidery book I found. In hindsight, I wish I would've found the normal canvas totes first, but of course, Joanns didn't carry them, but Michaels did. So annoying to chase around materials. ANYWAYS. The plan continued - t-shirt tote bags for the girls. I ordered patterns from Sublime Stitching
Iris! Iris loves owls. Girl is nuts for them. So owls was a wise choice. I used the Forest Friends Transfer

For Lele, I went with Scooter Babes. Let's be honest, she's a hottie who should probably tool around on a scooter :)

Kim, I had originally planned on using the Bon Voyage transfer. Unfortch, they were out of stock when I went to order so I needed a new plan. Plan B was another scooter tote, since Kim loves Europe and Europe loves scooters. But then I felt bad doing two scooter designs. So I moved onto Plan C. Plan C I found a Aunt Martha's travel transfer at Joann's. I also deviated from the t-shirt tote bag pattern and used a pre-made tote. What can I say, I love my sister from another mister! The end result was also another one of my favorite finished projects.

Here they are, ready to be wrapped, boxed and shipped in time for Christmas!
