More Fabric

DSCF8094-1

Can you stand any more fabric projects?  I have been having fun with SU’s Spice Cake line….so pretty! Here is a gift bag I made for one of my club hostesses:

It’s just a brown paper bag trimmed at the top to fit a half sheet of cardstock.  I used some fusible web to adhere the fabric to the cardstock, then sticky stripped the cardstock to the bag; added a little button embellishment with a fabric banner and a fabric tie.  Sentiment is from You’re A Gem.

At the club meeting we made a simple box from the #2 die and used fabric as a tie-on embellishment:

And finally, I saw ADORABLE gathered fabric baskets here and knew I just had to make one!  Unfortunately, I again used that fusible webbing to adhere my batting to my fabric, and the type I used does not work with a sewing machine….so I had to hand sew the entire thing and it is a MESS!  So I will try this again, but I at least wanted to show you how cute it could be:

Be sure to look at Sarah’s baskets so you know what they’re supposed to look like!  Thanks for visiting today!

LeAnne, I DO NOT see the 'mess' you refer to. I checked out Sarah's Baskets and yours is just as pretty!! I also loved the gift bag and box - VERY CLEVER!

I love the romantic feel of your card and your fabric projects are inspirational LeAnne! Cassidy's little knitted top is gorgeous too with that stunning flower - did you have a hand in that too?!
