Happy Monday everyone!
R-Chee & I have been busy making FUN projects we wanted to do this Summer together before the busy Fall & Winter seasons start! :)
Last week we showed you two bags we gave a second life to by adding fabric & pom pom embellishments from our stash!
Now we have two more to show you this week! :)
Here is the front of the 3rd bag that I made a bit more colorful by painting non-toxic fabric dyes on the front, inside and side flaps. :)
Then I decorated it with a cross stitch I started 20+ years ago but never finished!
This cross stitch kit was huge! Like 18 x 24 huge that I just knew I would never get back to so I got out my scissors, fabric glue and binding and made a patch out of the part I did complete. :)
The only problem was that the bottom corner still had a blank spot.
So... to hide it, I just did the same thing to a little silk embroidery I had and I made a patch for my patch!
This is the fabric glue I use by Dritz.
It is called Unique Stitch and I just love it!
I can always find it at Joanns.com
The final touch to complete my bag was to use the Unique Stitch fabric glue to attach 2 vintage pot holders from my stash onto a piece of yellow craft felt, glue a ribbon border around the craft felt, a pom pom border around the ribbon and the two orange pom poms at the bottom corners. :)
Please come back on Wednesday to see our 4th bag we redid!
R-Chee and I will show you how we spruced up this bag that I knitted several years ago, but decided it needed a little more to make it truly complete! :)
