I know right?? You have ALWAYS wanted to make
a rock collecting bag!! LOL
I know it may seem like an odd idea and very simple
but here is my special rock collecting bag using
Imaginisce Dino Roar goodies.
Did you know you can buy canvas bags (small ones) in a 3 pack
at Hobby Lobby for like 3.00? With your coupon it's like nothing.
You remember this bag right?
Since I made this bag my son has been asking me to make
him a rock collecting bag, and a bag for his Hot Wheels.
Well here is my dilemma....he will break it.
Let's just face it, do I want to put a bunch of lace and paper and glue
on a bag he will break and everything will be ripped off?
when Imaginisce sent me the Dino Roar line and I saw
the fabric stickers, I got to thinking
Why not make him a scaled down safer version
of mommy's pretty bag!
So I grabbed my sewing machine and my Aleene's Fabric Fusion
*which I have to say does NOT string up at all when using! Loves it!*
And I went to town.
Now this is not heavily embellished or super fancy,
but it is all glued down and stitched so it will last.
I took one bag and CUT off the front, I used No Fray from Dritz,
and frayed the edges a little by hand, then put the No Fray on.
Then I went to work on the Dino Roar canvas layout
(because basically that is what it was after I had it ready)
After finishing the stitching on the Dino, and the border pieces and
chipboard. I glued down the canvas piece to another bag
I had misted using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.
I am telling you, I am seriously considering making these
for all my nieces and nephews on the coast for their shell collecting!
It was easy, fun, and inexpensive!
I think that 1 of each pack of embellishments
should make at least 5 bags if not 8.
WOOT! :) OK it's not my fancy scrapping but I had a ball
and my boy is the happiest rock collector in all of TN right now!
~Thanks for popping by and sayin' hey to this silly crafter~
~Have a fantastic day today!~
