Mini Felt Purses

No stamping today. I used my BIG SHOT a lot! The purse is from the BASKETS & BLOOMS die from Stampin' Up. I folded the felt just above the bottom cut line. I trimmed the "fold line" that would normally would have scored on paper. I sewed a 1/4 inch on both sides. It really is that easy. The flowers are fabric scraps I had using the FUN FLOWERS die. If you only get one flower dies, this is the one to have! I mixed fabric stiffener and water (1 part each) into a sprayer. I sprayed each fabric layer after cutting and then scrunched them in my hands. I let them dry over night. It doesn't make them super stiff, it just gives them a bit more body. I will be putting these up in my ETSY Shop this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

Backpack... and I'm back!

It's not for lack of wanting... the same old excuse! I just need to make time. Ok, enough of all that.

Check out my backpack! I have been wanting to make this FOREVER. Finally made time. I used my favorite Stampin' Up paper "Love Letter". The crown is from the Artistic Etchings with a bit of bling. I wrapped some gum with the same paper and made a pull for it.

The most important part was the template. You can buy it from the amazing Becky Robert's HERE. She had some gorgeous samples too.

Thanks for stoping by!

p.s. I'm working on my lighting!

Paperbag Treat Holder

Another craft show creation. I used a lunch size paper bag, folded it, and sewed three sides to create a pouch. Now you can fill it with whatever you want. I think these will be a hit- if not, this is what the neighborhood kids are getting for Halloween! If you want the exact folding dimensions, shoot me an email and I'm happy to help you out.

Halloween Tag

I Know! It's still summer- but, we are getting ready for a craft show in October and I promised myself (and my family) that I would not wait until September to start getting ready. I am loving making these fabric tags. The ghost is from a Quickutz die. I cut some balck fabric I had to make the tags that measure about 3 x 4 1/2. I love the look of using a safety pin to hang it from a jar of some sort. I hope you like it- I will be showing it again once the jars are ready to go.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fabric Tags

Thanks to Michelle Wooderson I am so addicted to finding "vintage" fabric. I have had great luck at the thrift store. I used punches from Stampin' Up for the bird and flower. The butterfly is a Papertrey die. More safety pins to hang them from. I try to make them the same size, more or less. I like that each one is original!

Have a great day

It's Andrea's Birthday

Hi All-
it's Andrea's birthday and she giving a way TONS of great stuff! Not only is she SUPER talented but generous beyond belief. Click on the picture on my side bar to go and wish her a happy bday!

Tags- Lots of them!

I LOVE the tags that Dawn McVey did on her blog. They are SO lovely- so lovely I had to case them!

I used one of the Fillable frames dies to cut a piece of cork. I adhered 4 more layers of c/s to make them more sturdy so I could sew the scraps right on them. The flowers are a die set from Papertrey that I used to cut the felt flower out; Of course a small button to finish it off.
I hope you like these! I have to say, these are my favorite!
