While the kids are at school, mummy gets her craft on.
I picked up the plain green, ready-made felt bag in the clearance section of (I think it was) Michaels quite a few months ago for 50 cents.
Marisol is an avid collector of bags (a trait she obtained from me) … something that daddy is not happy about, especially when she goes from 50 cent bags to $500 bags in the years to come.
The plain green bag needed to be prettied up a little.
So armed with:
- the green bag
- a pink fat quarter
- white felt
- embroidery thread
- a needle
- black fabric paint
- and a paintbrush
I set to work.
I did a rough sketch of what I wanted to put on the bag.
I cut out a template and then used a fabric pen to draw the outline onto the fat quarter and felt before cutting.
Then I hand stitched the bird and her pretty wing onto the bag.
So cute! I have a daughter who is a bag collector too. And theyre all full, of who-knows-what.
Thats a cute bag. I love the bright green, its fun! I bet she was very happy coming home to this surprise!
Cute! I thought it was a twitter bag at first. lol
Simple and beautiful!
So cute! I would look at a 50 cent felt bag and think its just crap but then you get ahold of it and make it into something fab. Its really a talent.
