to make, my French tote

I took the easy way out with this tote
I bought the blank tote from Walmart and washed it in the machine to soften a bit,
 then removed the way too short straps


For the French logo I used this frame image from the Graphics fairy
I designed the French art with my Picasa program and printed it onto transfer paper
in mirror image of course
Then ironed it onto my tote and added a great crochet trim I tore off an old pillowcase

Image applied

 here are the new straps, much longer and ready to sew in place

All complete, off to the market this weekend

I could have added a fabric flower I had ready, but it seemed too much, so left it off and like it better
Market totes are so easy!
