Owl Always Love You!

Hiya, Folks!!
Sooooo, I totally got my color on...
...aaannnd, my stitch on...
...which resulted in one pretty, summer tote bag!!

So, yeah---lemme break it down for ya...
Ever since I saw Carissa's fun t-shirt-transfer-meets-Copic-markers-tutorial, I've been jonesin' to give it a go.
It's been forever.
Like years.
And I still hadn't got to playin'!!
So. I got off my toosh, grabbed by iron and got a little crafty :-)

I have to tell ya, I just love everything about this bag!
Love the owl I the image (You can find 'Owl Always Love You' in Krista's shop HERE!).
Love the ruffle and buttons.
LOVE the pink gingham lining!

Here's a close-up of the image, colored with Copic Markers---which was a bit difficult, due to the non-porous nature of the fabric transfer sheet! 
It's a bit sticky, and you do have to allow for drying time in between colors (much like watercolor!), but I think she came out just fine :-)

Ok guys, you ready to play??
If you wanna see a bit about how this bag came together, check it out HERE, on the Saturated Canary YouTube channel.
