Rag Quilt Purse
I finally got my first rag quilt purse completed this week and wanted to share with my blog friends. The link to Angie's tutorial is my sidebar called Helpful Tips Links. I cut cotton fabric strips (5 inches in width) using a rotary cutter then ran up to 8 thicknesses through my Cuttlebug using SU's large scallop square die. Please refer to Angie's tutorial for more details. I chose to line it using an off white lining fabric which I think helps to delineate the squares more. It's so lightweight to carry and would make a nice bazaar or gift item.
I also wanted to share the 2 cards I created in stamp club this morning...I just love this new set called 'Just Believe'. We masked the sun and sponged around it...great to use a silouette image with this technique! The new narrow taffeta ribbon (mind is Early Espresso) is so easy to work with; the wider striped ribbon gave me more of a challenge to make a bow, but I love it, also!
It's work day for me this afternoon, so time to head that direction. Have a wonderful weekend!
