Hello! Did everyone have a nice Christmas? We had a jam-packed week in KS visiting my family. It was wonderful. There wasn't much time for crafting, but I did whip this guy up the night before we left.
I ordered this tote bag crafting kit from Darby Smart. I used some of my own paint along with the materials in the kit and ended up with this map tote.
As cool as it was, I thought it would be fun to dress it up a bit more by marking where I have traveled on it. I used embroidery floss to add a little yellow "x" to my home state. After we returned home from KS, I used some red floss to mark off Kansas City.
I stored my needle and thread in a small Altoids tin and plan on carrying it with me while I travel. I don't really want to try and go back and add all the places I have been already so I'm going to just start marking from now on.
I had a lot of fun making this project. It was easy to create but feels really fun and personal.
