Save Our Turtles Shopping Bag

For a long time I wanted to make my own shopping bag but never got to it. So finally after months of procastinating I managed to make my own bag with an environment message " SAVE OUR TURTLES". It is a cause dear to my heart as I am a diver who enjoys watching these creatures in their own underwater realm.

Note: I think I made the hatching turtle too small :(

The illustration was made with Pentel Arts Fabric Fun Pastel Dye Sticks (see below) which I bought a few months ago at ArtFriend (a really superb arts and craft store). It is simple to use and is not permanent till the images are fixed with a hot iron.

So another overdued project completed. Now I am thinking of making more shopping bags and having fun creating the illustrations and messages. (Btw, this current message was lifted off MNS :)
