Monogram Tote Bag: A

Here is another monogrammed tote for one of my small group girls!
I had seen one of the blogs in my feed (Allie's in Stitches) had mentioned Broderie Perse which got me interested so I google searched about it! It's a form of applique using a printed fabric that you cut out the print and applique it onto another fabric.
So having this in the back of my head I got the idea to use a floral print for the decorations on this monogram! I just cut around the print and took the easy route by raw edge appliqueing it with invisible thread and a straight stitch on my sewing machine!
I think it gives it a pretty yet edgy feel and I think it looks sorta Shabby Chic-ish! LOL
I also tied a strip of the fabric with the raw edges frayed into a bow on the handle.
