Description

I realized I enjoy making bags, especially tote bags, because of its simplicity and I can decorate em with almost anything, from embroideries to fabric flowers. This time I want to make something as a merchandise for our tattoo studio (which name is CarpeDiem TattooStudio), and came over this beautiful ambigram by John Langdon. You can read ‘Carpe Diem’ even if you rotate the word 180 degree! It’s been a long time ago, the last time I make embroidery, I hope this turns good! :)

    great idea for a merchandise-project! Do you have it stitched by hand or machine?

      thank you! :) it’s hand-stitched (and the bag too, my sewing machine is broken at the time)
