Cat Tote/ Handpainted by Catcalls' Shop

This original design art tote was created entirely from recycled materials. The denim was painted with acrylic, the cat was cut from heavy cotton then painted, stitched and appliqued on as were the letters. The inside and handles are made from purple and lime flannel. Two pockets were sewn to the interior. It is finished with a clear acrylic spray. This is a very sturdy and durable tote.
I am a regular supporter of my local humane society through cage sponsorship and will be participating in their annual fund raiser dog walk on Sept. 19th. I hope to raise a good amount through the raffle I will be holding. I can't wait! 10% of this sale will go to Defenders of Wildlife, the Etsy for Animals Charity of the Month for September.
