I found an old radiator water bag at a garage sale and every time I walked by it I kept thinking that it was a purse. So when I needed an idea for a blog hop project I decided to create a tote using the water bag as an inspiration piece.

I used some techniques that I learned in art school to transfer the image to some dropcloth material. A little acrylic paint, some simple sewing and now I have a fun tote.
