SCALLOP RAG BAG (and stamping on fabric)

I have been working on this scallop bag for a while now, but my sewing machine decided to have a fit in the middle and had to be sent in for a service, but I’ve finally finished!  I really like the way it turned out and it’s so super easy with the Big Shot cutting 6-8 pieces of fabric at once … it make it a breeze to cut out!!

I will be offering this bag as a class on February 26th and then again on March 25th, but there will only be 6 spots per session, so make sure you sign up fast so you don’t miss out!  CHECK OUT MY CALSS CALENDAR FOR MORE DETAILS.  You will get to make your bag in class and will receive full instructions so you can make them again afterwards as well.

All my Big Shot Club members will receive the instructions free next month as their monthly Big Shot project!  If you would like to know how you can sign up for the Big Shot Club, drop me an e-mail and I’ll tell you all about it!

Melinda and I had a play at stamping on fabric with the Glimmer Paints this week.  I have to say that I was really very impressed at how well they stamped and stayed put!  On the sample above you can see the 3 colours of Glimmer Paint (top row, left to right is Champagne, Platinum, and White) with the Eifel Tower stamped in craft white below.  After we had stamped and ironed our fabric, we washed it to make sure that it wouldn’t come out with washing, then wrung it out and re-ironed it, and this is what it looked like after that.  Pretty cool huh?  My mind is going nuts thinking of all the things I want to stamp now …

LOVE the bag - it's FANTASTIC! Really nice to see more of your creations, sadly I can't sew so not much hope of me in the class but sounds like it will be fun!
