custom made anniversary bag

have you seen one of these little pieces of handiness? it is a bias tape maker by dritz (mine is a single fold 1/2 in.)

imagine the possibilities!

i just took some medium weight white cotton fabric for this project. then cut it in a 1 in. strip to the length i needed, pulled it through and ironed. done.

in my stash i have small stamp letters. and off i went..

the bag is made of 3 pieces of felt- two sides and an oval bottom. before sewing them together i sewed the tape into place, hemmed the top and then put the pieces together. i used a simple raffia cord to tie the bag with wooden beads on the ends so they would not pull through.

happy anniversary to us.

You are just so crafty my friend! It's funny too, I just bought 2 books about using felt for fun things. The one that I am working from now is called "Cute Things". I am making little hairbands for the girls.
