The fruits of my screen printing - Girl Scout Tote

Remember that screen printing class I took this summer? Last weekend I finally got everything together and sewed up a few tote bags out of the Girl Scout fabric.

There are two colors - mushroom and magenta. I must say I'm kinda partial to the mushroom.

They are lined with vintage material (sheets, my favorite), with a little patch pocket that matches. And I finally remembered to use my new woven labels!

I really went for an easy construction with these - note the webbed handles. I knew I didn't want to screen print on pre-made bags, but I also didn't want to spend a ton of time sewing. A fine balance. 

I am sooo happy with how these turned out - I want to start using one immediately. However, I will resist - they will be in the shop sometime next week!


  1. Oooh Katie. These are fab. Love the Girl Scout design, and I ALWAYS love magenta!

  2. Love. Want. Tell Buck to get me one for Halloween, or Thanksgiving, or Christmas, which is too long to wait...but I would. LOVE!


Comments make me happy! Thank you, and look for your response here!
