Baby Sock Tote

I have a Trendy Twine Little Sister post for you today!
This month we are showcasing the Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine and sharing baby projects.

I am very excited about this as I will be hosting a baby shower very soon. This is going to help me brainstorm some ideas.

I decided to make a tote to hold baby socks in. This is my prototype for the shower. I will make several of these for table decorations with a paper choice modification to match the colors of the shower. This tote with the blue, pink, and brown colors would be great if the baby's gender is unknown. My finished project for the shower will use this twine though as we know the baby is a girl!!! I really like the chocolate and pink color combo.

Using a tote from Lori Whitlock, I resized it larger to fit my need. I assembled it and attached the side panels. I then cut out the Floppy Bear file from LSHD and inked it and pieced it together. The Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine was wrapped around the caddy three times and tied off with a bow. I pop dotted the bear to the front.

On the back side, I used a Spellbinder's die to cut and emboss a scalloped oval. I added a baby sentiment to the oval from My Craft Spot and inked the edges. This was also attached with pop dots.

To finish it off, I tied a double bow to the handle and added a piece of twine there as well. What a super sweet project and it will not be hard to make the ten or so that I will need!

Trendy Twine: Chocolate Cupcake
