Fun with Felt and Fabric

I don’t sew (ask my mom) but I love to make projects with felt and fabric. So, when I got my Sizzix I knew I’d found a way to make projects without sewing!

I have an 8 year old daughter who loves Webkinz and she loves to dress them up and play pretend. So, when I was preparing for my Open House (today!) I wanted to try out using felt in my Sizzix.

I used the scallop envelope die and cut out some black felt. I think I mentioned before that I don’t sew, so I used sticky strip to keep it all together. The flap is held down with some sticky backed velcro. I used the birds and blooms Sizzlet and cut out some gingham fabric and added a Rhinestone brad for an accent. I punched holes in the back of the purse with my Crop-A-Dile and tied in some Eggplant grosgrain.

This purse is super cute and my daughter has asked for an “exclusive” line for her stuffies. A new business venture for me? I don’t think so…..

Check back tomorrow for photos of my big outdoor New Catalogue Open House!
