Mama's got a brand new bag

Whale Tote

I purchased a plain tote bag from Wal Mart (about $2.50.) I then added some red rick rack through the top with a straight stitch. After choosing the fabric (from my MIL, very nice freebie) I ironed on some fusible webbing. Then, I ran it through my Cricut using the Life Is A Beach cartridge. Next, I ironed on the pieces to the bag. I also added some hand stitching with red thread and a red button for the eye. Lastly, with some of the leftover fabric, I trimmed a piece and attached to the handle.
