Minions!!!!! :)

Hi everyone :) 

For our recent trip to California and Las Vegas ... I wanted to make Brookie a tote bag for the car ride :) 

Welllll my sewing skills are not good ... not BAD, but not good either ( I have been looking for a local sewing class, but they are all during my working hours )  .... so I searched YouTube for a T-shirt tote bag tutorial and found this one :) 

 Seemed like even I couldn't screw this up :) 

So I got Brookie a Minion T-shirt from Kohl's and here is what it looked like before.... 





After following the instructions on the video ... I thought it looked a little boy-ish :)  So I added some lace :) 

And here is Brookie's new Minion tote bag :) 




And with little model Brookie :) 





Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
