Personalized Sequin Quote Art Tote

I guess you could say that I'm a big quote art gal.  I love quote art in giant uppercase sans serifs and pretty swoopy hand lettered looks too!  So I love experimenting on different surfaces, from totes to tees to canvas!  Here's a fun little DIY I whipped up at work in just an hour or two. Let me show you just how easy it is to make!

What you need:
– 2-3 yards stringed sequins
– Tote bag
– Disappearing ink pen (don't make my mistake and use a pencil)
– Scissors
Loosely use your disappearing ink pen to draw your phrase. Do not do as I did and use a pencil (I'm afraid it won't wash out - ACK!)  You will be much happier if you do this, I promise.
Next, apply a thin steady flow of the Fabric Fusion Pen, doing a small section at a time. Carefully press the sequins in place. Clip the ends of the letter with your scissors when you reach the end of a word.
When you are happy with you design.  Set a magazine or book on top and let the glue dry thouroughly.  Fabric Fusion works best when pressure is applied so it can get a good, nice bond!  Let your glue dry for an hour or two.  Clip off any straggly strings or dangling sequins and your bag is ready to take out on the town! 
What phrase would put on your tote bag? I'd love to know!!

Oh Boy! This is great! I don't have to sew the sequins one by one. Beats embroidery hands down. I've got just the design in mind. Thanks! Mary

After being in relationship with George for five years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called DR Mako and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 6pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him :+2347054263874.
