Tree Hugger Tote

So, this used to be a curtain.
I'd like to meet the woman with that kind of confidence.

I adore the shades in this piece. I've been hoarding it for a while, clinging to it, grasping it to myself. But then spring came, and dead stuff starting turning green. And it was time to share.

So, I took those curtains, ripped a couple of seams, and turned those trees into something less overwhelming than window coverings.

(I even used velcro so that you can be all private and secretive about what you hide in there)

Here she is all bent out of shape and turned inside out. Three pockets on the one side; and three on the other. Going through the box of clothes in my closet labelled "Summer" meant the final sacrifice for a pair of well-worn cargo shorts.

A button closure means that large pocket just became more practical.

So, there you have it. I think those trees would look awesome just about anywhere in the spring and summer. Just imagine. Beach days. Picnics. Bike rides...
This tote remains available all week.
Well, at least until Thursday, April 29, 2010 at 9:30 pm cst.
I'll accept any bids above $15.00 Cdn to get us started.
Please leave your bids and comments in the comment box, and send me an e-mail at if you have any questions.

I remember similar curtains hanging in our first little house on the farm. I think.
