I made a tote with hidden phrases under the ruffles for a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is embarking on the whole chemo and radiation journey.
You know what it's like, you feel helpless and want to do something and since she is in another state I'm limited. I knew she would need a tote as she went to all of her different treatments and appointments.
To carry reading material, medical records, snacks, etc. I used a lot of vintage fabric and added a detachable rose
It looks like a sweet little bag until you lift up it's ruffles.
My friend loves a good glass of chardonnay
She enjoys nothing more than sitting at her lake cottage
Maybe a hidden phrase that will make her smile
Before I added the ruffles I used T shirt transfer paper that I talked about in my last post. Printed off some phrases and used my magic pen to draw lines
Ironed on my phrases, and then attached the ruffles
I added some cute little pockets
A little note from me
Wishing her an easy journey
This was so fun to make, I think there will be more hidden message bags in my future
