Bonjour tout le monde! Now you all know that I am a bag fanatic, I have so many because people are always making lovely new ones! I am equally addicted to shopping bags, I have this Ted Baker one…….
I have this tribute bag from the Alexander Mcqueen one from the V & A exhibition ……
When I saw these bags from italian brand Kartell, I nearly fainted …….
How gorgeous is that? but the price tag is also a bit swoon making….£254!
So with my thinking cap on I popped to the retro brand Sunjellies and bought this gorgeous number……..
Just £17! I then sat down with my trusty Sizzix machine and cut some flower shapes……
You can also cut these shapes or similar by hand, just google “felt flower pattern”. I wasn’t keen on the black ones so I ended up with these………
Before I got any further I received my inspiration box from Katie at Felted Fancies supplies, behold its loveliness……..
Inside there was also some felt flowers and of course much nicer than mine so I glued my pink ones and Katie’s flowers straight onto the bag using my hot glue gun….
I also made some Chrysanthemum ones by folding a strip of felt in half, then cutting vertically every half centimetre almost to the bottom, roll up this strip and you have a flower! after much gluing this is the result……..
Cute enough but it think it needs something else? my super talented daughter suggested more flowers gradually getting less as we move up the bag. I will be thinking about this alongside some new product development next week and i’ll hopefully post the updated picture next week.
In the meantime, here’s your links:
