The Giving Tree Tote

I made this quick little tote yesterday for a swap. The theme was Children's Books and the recipient of this bag chose several books including The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. This is the picture from the front cover and the first line of the book (I'm hoping that copyright is kind when it's a gift and only one item!). I drew the image with a pigment marker and coloured it with fabric pastels ( the waxy iron-them-afterwards kind). Hoping like mad that she likes it!
ps Sorry about the photo quality. I'm out of good light now until tomorrow.

Beautiful and creative - I think the copywriters will be merciful. :o)

Adorable. My daughter LOVED Shel Silverstein books when she was younger.

Oh wow, a place for old bags & new bags to meet. I have to admit I love bags/toes also. I have way more than I need but there is so much pretty fabric out there.

Another old bag
