In the spirit of all things green today

It isn't St. Patrick's Day to me without seeing the Chicago River dyed green. Every year, 40 gallons of vegetable dye is put in the river in celebration of St. Patrick's day and Irish traditions (don't ask...it's a Chicago tradition).




Coincidentally, yesterday while I wallowed in my sickness, I made this "green" shoulder tote bag. It truly embodies the spirit of green with its eco friendly statement and upcycled seat belt handles. It is also the first bag I've made with the large grommets...fun! You can find it on my website here.
