Stylin' Stampin' Squad February Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to another addition of our blog hop. If you just joined us then don't worry  you can travel onto the other blogs just by following the links at the bottom of my post. I really look forward to seeing what everyone has to share each month and this month is extra exciting as we are featuring our fabric. I love to sew and our fabric has added an extra dimension to my projects. Today I have two projects to share with you with the first being a Valentine's day card. The supplies I used are Real Red Card Stock and Ink, You are loved Stamp Set, Crumb Cake Card Stock, Basic Black Card Stock, Very Vanilla Card Stock, Basic Black Dotted Scallop Ribbon, Large Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch, More Amore Designer Series Fabric, Basic Rhinestones, Illiminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad, Argyle Embossing Folder, Hearts Collection Framelits, Adorning Accents Folder and to cut the fabric I used the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die. I attached the fabric to the card with Sticky Strip. Now to move onto the next project I have to share with you. I started this next project at 8:30 last night and it went together fairly quickly.
I have been wanting to make a new purse but didn't want the traditional Rag Purse that I have made before so I decided to make it a little more traditional and add a lining inside. I used the Scallop Square Bigz Clear die and the Tea for Two Designer Fabric. I love the colors in the Fabric they look so Spring like and I am ready to Spring. After I cut out the squares I sewed them together to create the outside of my bag. I added a simple strap and then made a liner the same way I did the outside only I used a printed off white fabric. Then I just sewed the two layers together and added a top stitching aroung the top of the bag. I think I will add stitching on the square but for now it is complete. It may get a flower to just for extra decoration if I have enough fabric leftover. I think this will make a perfect Bible Bag.
I hope you enjoyed today's fabric projects. Please leave us a comment as you go along the hop so we know that you were here. Now I will send you on your way to Dawn's Creative Chalet.
Thanks for stopping by and have great day, Tonya

The bag is cute too. You started that @ 8:30 lastnight? Not sure I could have gotten a project like that done very quickly and still have it look good :)
