T-Shirt Totes

Another quick post, as I still don't have internet from my computer, and I have to share with hubby at home. Here are some tote bags I made from my husband's old t-shirts. Since they are comic book characters, I am selling them at my store. I've already sold the Death one, within a week of putting them out for display!

The first pic shows Shade the Changing Man and the back of the other tote:

The second pic shows DC/Vertigo's Death as drawn by Chris Bachalo (one of my favourite versions of Death) on the left and Shade on the right. I am not sure, but Bachalo may have done the Shade art as well, although the signature is different, it just says "Christopher".

And remember those hand pieced triangles I was working on? They've graduated into blocks! They're a little wonky, but I love them! I am thinking a wall hanging or a doll quilt. We'll see how many I can make.

I did manage to finish off some quilts, while I was away on holidays, but I haven't photographed them yet....so, hopefully, next post.

Just came here from Tonya's class. Love those bags!! My sister is shipping me two boxes of her husband's old T-shirts to make into a quilt, and now I'll see if they want a tote or two. Great idea!

T-shirt totes! What a great idea! Of course I read this right AFTER donating a bunch of my son's old t-shirts to Goodwill.. darn. I can see why you love your triangles. I do, too!
