Sew up a Simple Tote Bag!

In this month's Love Sewing Magazine (issue 24 available here)we have a super quick and brilliantly fun project for adding your own personal stamp to a tote bag.  Screenprinting is a lot of fun and you don't need any really expensive equipment when you're just printing small areas.  Just look at this fabulous Tote Bag and there are more great examples of screenprinted tote bags at the end of the post!
