This weeks challenge at
*yaaaaaayyyyyy nearly here!*
Instead of another card I decided to make a gift bag.
Our sponsor this week is the lovely
who gave me permission to use her image
as a paper pattern.
I printed out the image the size I wanted for the bag front...
traced the main "snowman" shape onto felt using carbon copy paper...
then cut out the other main shapes to draw around.
I kept the main pattern paper together to help
place the fabric pieces as accurately as possible,
and used fabric glue to attach the fabric shapes.
Keeping the main pieces meant I could see if everything
stayed true to the original image.
Then I just used a basic running stitch to add details and secure the pieces.
I was really quite pleased with the overall effect
*though I did unpick the scarf and move it across slightly lol*
The addition of a snowy mound makes him look a bit more stable :D
though I should probably have ironed the bag before I started :D
Entering the following challenges;
Hope you all have a lovely Christmas/Holiday season
Blessed Yuletide to you all XXX
