Design Team: Liz (Unik By Yes) Week 5 Cycle 9

Embellished Reusable Gift Bag

Liz is back with another gorgeous tutorial in time for Mother's Day! See how you can create this adorable tote using the eBosser & our sponsor; CAS-ual Fridays!

Hello Crafty friends!
Liz here today to share with you an embellished reusable bag, created using the Casual Fridays Loving Thoughts Stamp set and Casual Fridays Loving Blossoms Frie-Dies and the fabulous eBosser.

The story behind:

If you have visited me before, you know that I love using little scraps of either paper or fabric. A while ago I got a bunch of these large polyester bags from OT, and I just love personalizing them. They have been a great success with all recipients thus far J. Since polyester doesn’t take heat all too well – ask me how I know *wink*- I decided to embellish it using some “poomphed” flowers, stamps and some paint. Keep it almost monochromatic so the flowers will stand out. What do you think?

Creative supplies:
Reusable gift bag.
Cotton fabric. Mine is muslin (twice as much as your phoomp) about (15 x 3 inch)
Phoomp for fabric (about 8.5 x 3”)
Archival ink, mine is Coral from HS.
Small glass beads
Needle and thread
Ribbon for embellishing the top
Sewing machine.
Stencil (created with my eCraft)
Acrylic paint
Stenciling brush

eBosser plate combo: A + Metal plate + Fabric or Phoomp + Metal Die +  BCD
Craft Level: Easy
Time: 30-60 mins

Creative process:

Place a piece of cardboard inside your bag where you are going to position your stencil. Using the paint, stencil your monogram or initials. Let dry.

Using the thin metal dies cut your fabric flowers and Phoomp flowers. You will need two fabric flowers per 1 Phoomp flower.

Remove the backing of your Phoomp one side at a time and apply it to the back of your fabric flowers.

Stamp the front of your flowers.

Sew in place and add your glass beads. Make sure the ends of your threads are hidden between your bag and the back of your flowers. Please note that your needle might be a little tacky from the glue on the phoomp, after finishing your might want to clean it with a little bit of alcohol or goo gone.

Using your sewing machine, sew the ribbon/lace around the top edge and you are done!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a crafty day!

Thank you Liz!
