Today is PTI's September blog hop, and I was so happy to have the time to join in after work!
Since it is a fabric/felt challenge, I'm sharing a pouch I sewed and a matching tag (using the same fabric). I'm not sure what kind of gift you could put in here, but jewelry or a small trinket would be perfect!
I love this fabric- I got it a while ago at Joann's, and it was pretty inexpensive. Whenever I go to a store that sells fabric, I end up leaving with single yards of a few different prints. I
hoard collect save them for future projects. Usually a yard is all you need for a pouch, small purse, or a hair accessory. I have 2 huge bins with random bits of fabric- I love it!
I can't believe I'm bringing this to your attention, but do you see that smudge on the lower right-hand side of the tag? I accidentally dropped a glob of glue there, and as I was trying to wipe it off it ended up getting dirty. I thought erasing it might help, but it didn't. Any tips?
I think that the leaf motif is just perfect for the current CAS-ual Fridays Fall-Themed Challenge. (oh yea- anyone visiting from the CAS-ual Fridays DT can ignore the above paragraph where I admit that I screwed up the tag. lol!)
Thanks so much for visiting!
Beautiful! Love the fabric too. Know what you mean about fabric collection. Kinda like paper collecting!ReplyDelete
This is perfect. I love how you used the fabric on the tag, and don't worry about the smudge. Only you will see it. I am always so impressed with anyone who can sew.ReplyDelete
Your project is so nicely coordinated. So nice how you cut the leaves to fit on the tag. Love it!!ReplyDelete
Stunning projects! Love them both--even with the glue smudge! [I would have suggested the eraser--so no help from me, sorry]ReplyDelete
I definitely would have never noticed the smudge unless you pointed it out...I don't have any advice, but if you get any that works, please share it with me! I'd like to know, too :) So the pouch is adorable! I love that you also used the fabric on the tag! And I'm liking that sentiment, too...I don't remember that one...hummmReplyDelete
Drooling (smudge and all), what a great little gift.ReplyDelete
Love the bag and tag! Beautiful.-IrmaReplyDelete
I LOVE how you cut the leaves from the fabric and added them to your tag! It's perfect!ReplyDelete
Staples brand Erasers are the best. A clean one will get rid of smudges like that, so be sure to wear down the eraser on some white cardstock first. I don't think anything else has worked for me. Good luck! And beautiful work on this set!ReplyDelete
Love your fabric and what you did with it. The two leaves on the tag are a perfect way to say "welcome Fall"! This is a great take on BOTH challenges, Jen thanks for sharing the wonderful ideas. : )ReplyDelete
Oh this is DARLING!!! I um.. hum.. do the same thing with fabric and so does my DD (and she is only 12.. so it is probably my fault! HA!) I would say if eraser doesn't work.. distres/ink the edges!.. no one will ever know.. to be honest I didnt even notice til you told us! LOL!! To busy looking at how CUTE it all was!!ReplyDelete
Have a GREAT day!
So pretty! Love how you cut out some of the leaves from the fabric to use on the tag.ReplyDelete
How pretty! I cannot believe you pointed out the smudge! I would've never noticed, and I have no good tips either except for don't spill the glue;)ReplyDelete
Love your pouch and how you added leaves from the fabric for the tag. I would have had a really hard time leaving the store without a cut of fabric like this one. The more a look at it the more I love your pouch and that fabric.ReplyDelete
I love your bag & tag - the cut leaves are a wonderful idea on the tag - it is such a lovely, coordinated set!ReplyDelete
So gorgeous! I have a small mountain of fabric building up too!! ;) As for the smudge - which I would never have noticed - I think Crafters Companion do a spray called 'Stick Away' for that kind of thing, I haven't tried it though.ReplyDelete
So pretty. Everthing complements each other, the color, the tag, the design. Im keeping stash of fabrics too and may need to do some digging to create something out of it as a gift. I'll match the same with a tag. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Wow this is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Very pretty. Love the little clutch.ReplyDelete
WOW I LOVE THIS! This definitely wants to make me try my hand at sewing again! And the fabric print is beautiful, perfect for the season!ReplyDelete
SO beautiful, Jennifer! Love your inspired tag! I am a klutz when it comes to spilling accidents. (you can say I am PRO at this). I always have some white pen or white acrylic Dabber ( The Rangers paint Dabber) will work well as it gives a white wash look--> make it look like Hampton style!!?). It works for me!http://eclecticpaperie.com/adacpadasnca.htmlReplyDelete
anyhow so glad that you played with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
BEAUTIFUL!! LOVE the colors and your wonderful creativity...amazing:)!! So sweet having you be a part of the challenges here at CAS-ual Fridays:)!!ReplyDelete
WOW!! This is UBER cute!! Amazing fabric and bag and your tag is fabulously genius! Thanks for playing along with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous. I'm drooling over here Jen! For smudges of glue, let it dry completely and THEN erase with a white eraser. If that doesn't work then "distress" the edges of the tag with a darker grey ink, or a white one to lessen the notice-ablility (is that even a word?)!ReplyDelete
So glad you joined us for CAS-ual Fridays this week:)
So cute and I love the color combo.ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous, Jennifer! Both the bag and the tag. love the soft colors. That fabric is amazing!ReplyDelete
This is stunning. i love it!ReplyDelete
