Papa's got a brand new bag

First can I apologise for the poopy pictures. Gee, who knew how difficult it would be to photograph a blinkin canvas tote bag lol! Anyways I will be entering this bag and matching card into a passion for papertrey's die cut challenge and craftycatzweekly challenge of anything but a card (even though it is anything but a card and oh by the way a card hee hee!)

I had a few plain canvas totes and decided to rev up the ol' sewing machine. Using some felt embellishments I die cut, I run it through the machine with a LOT of fairly straight lines to look like grass and then a bit of zig-zagging to attach the pretty butterflies and cornflowers :D

Actually the card came first in the idea process and then I thought it would be good fun to match it with a bag - well a girl likes to accessorize!

Have a great day & see you soon xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Confetti white card stock and basic blank ink. Other: Papertrey ink Autumn blessings sentiment, wool felt, butterfly die and tea dye ink duo.

just a thought maybe a piece of cardstock may have helped inside the bag x
