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!
