My adventures in Miniatures and other artistic endeavors, and all the mischief I get sidetracked in along the way. . .

Loving Machine Embroidery
So, what do you get when you buy a $1 nylon bag with a bow on it at the Dollar Tree, and you embroider "Once upon a Time" on it? You get a darling bag that is just perfect to hold your nook color e-reader. Really, I am so pleased with this project. It is just too cute!
Here's a close up of the embroidery. So now I carry this with me everywhere and it lowers the chance of leaving my nook color at Applebees, like I did a couple of weeks ago. That was not a fun experience, and thank heavens it was looked up in the manager's office when I drove back there at 11:45pm. Yes, I would not let my precious e-reader spend the night away from home without me! :) But I don't want to lose the bag either, so I tend to make sure I have it.
It's the perfect size to hold my nook color, my up close reading glasses (don't ask- it's too depressing), a cleaning cloth, and any other trinket I must have with me. I've even been known to throw my wallet in there and carry it as a purse in a pinch.
So, looks like some of my e-reading friends might be getting something similar for Christmas. . .
