Compendium of Curiosities Challenge-Frayed Fabric

It is time once again for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over on Linda's blog.  We are, as always, working out of the book by Tim Holtz and you can order one directly from him!  Tim and Mario are providing one lucky player with a fantasmic collection of goodies. And in addition, another lucky player will receive a shopping spree courtesy of The Inspiration Emporium. This challenge is Frayed Fabric and can be found on page 66 of Tim's book.  

I decided to take my rather extensive collection of Tim's fabrics and cover a canvas tote that I can use to take to classes I take at the wonderful Whim So Doodle in St. Pete, Florida. Since it's canvas, I don't have to worry about scissors poking thru and I can fit lots of goodies in the outside pockets and also inside. 

As you can see, I've filled it with Tim's products in the hopes that he and Mario will come back to St Pete to Whim So Doodle in 2015 to teach again!

(The fabric on the end panels is NOT Tim's! I found it on clearance at Hobby Lobby and it was so cute, I had to have some. So I included it on my tote because it makes me smile)     :)

Hi Sue!! I just had to come by from the CC3 #19 challenge and admire your tote!! It's wonderful! I can't help but quote from 'Jaws'--"you're going to need a bigger bag" to hold more TH goodies :) LOL :) But really--your tote and all of its pockets is outstanding!! Dare I say this is a CC3 winner? I've been known to predict the winners :) Good luck!! XOXO-Shari
