Painted, Aplique, MOPS Oh MY!

I have had a CRAZY fall. One of the many reasons I haven't been on the blog much. One of the things I have added to my plate is being the creative coordinator for my local MOPS group. (If you don't know what MOPS is and you are a stay at home mom with ANY children under the age of 6 click HERE to learn more about this amazing organization.

We try to keep our crafts useful since no mom needs more random junk floating around her house. Our theme is games this year and the game our group picked for October is Apples to Apples. We discussed personality types last meeting and tomorrow we are going to make tote bags. I was originally inspired by this bag and the idea of apple stamping. However, then I came across this  bag on pinterest and fell in love with that to. In the end I bought supplies for both as well as made a bunch of iron on appliques for those who have no desire to pain. Here are some pictures of my demo bag.

Doily stenciling.

Finished bag.

I can't free hand anything for the life of me so I opted to put an applique in the middle rather than an initial.

Not sure if I will keep this, use it as a holiday gift or a hostest gift at my next Scentsy. I do know it will get put to good use though. 

p.s. New post over at Grace and Manna
