Have you guys checked out the NEW SRM Muslin bags and Burlap Bags, yet?? I am totally in love with them. They are so versatile and fun to play with. I got to bring one home to make a sample with to put up at my work. I decided to use the muslin bag and went with a Love theme. Not only is it getting close to Valentine's day but I am simply in LOVE. :)
This bag was so easy to make and only takes few minutes and a few supplies:
1) Muslin Bag and Love Sticker Sentiment- SRM
2)Ribbons and Jute- I used one from Maya Road and Webster's (just dug thru my stash)
4)Needle and Thread
4)Optional- Cardstock for backing sticker. I used black felt, so I needed something to pop the sentiment.
I trimmed my ribbons to fit my bag and glued down. ( I added a zigzag stitch to my blue ribbon to give the look of being stitched to the bag.) Looped some jute a few times and used needle and thread to stitch to the bag. Since there was a knot I wanted to make sure it stayed on the bag. Then I hand cut two hearts out of black felt. On the big heart I stitched around the perimeter. Then glued the hearts down to the bag. I finished off with my "xoxo" sentiment and adhered to the big black heart.
Isn't that so sweet? Want to change it up? You could easily add a birthday sentiment or EVEN, a welcome baby type sentiment... Oh man I could go crazy with these bags :)
I am also adding this to the Runway Inspired Challenge. The colors pair so nicely and the ribbons remind me of the flow-y/ruffle-y-ness of the bottom of her dress.
