DIY No-Sew Gift Bag

Everyone loves a no-sew project right!
These cutie little calico bags are perfect for any little gift or event favour. The best thing is they are ridiculously easy to make. Seriously. Take a peek at these instructions and find out for your self.
Step 1
Workout how big you want your bags to be and cut your fabric to size. This Fiskars cutter is amazing for fabric. See my review here. Each bag needs two pieces.
Step 2
Apply glue to three sides of the fabric. The side without glue will be the opening for the bag. Stick two pieces together.

Step 3
Once the glue is dry turn the bag inside out. This will give you a lovely neat seam.



Step 4
Make a stencil using adhesive contact. 
All you have to do is cut the shape you would like on your bag from the centre.

Step 5
Pop a little piece of cardboard inside the bag. 
This will stop the paint going through to the other side of the bag.

Step 6
Sponge paint over the stencil



Step 7
Remove the contact and admire your work!

Pretty cool right! :)

Now just fill the bags with your little pressies and tie them up with a lovely, simple piece of brown string.

Cute right? And so SO simple. 
What do you think? :)

Crafted Review: Fiskars Cutter and Ruler Combo


I LOVE Fiskars products. My all time FAV scissors are Fiskars. Unfortunately they have gone to craft supply heaven and I don't think they make them anymore. :( Devastating, I know! 

Anyway, this post isn't about my late scissors it's about this freakin' awesome cutter! 
A few weeks ago I was asked if I would be interested in writing a post about the new Fiskars Cutter and Ruler Combo. I wasted no time in getting back to them with a big fat YES!! 

To tell you the truth, I was a little sceptical. I mean I knew it would be fine as it's got the Fiskars name on it, and they don't make bad stuff, but would it be amazing... meh. I just had to wait and see...

The packaging claims the cutter can get through 8 layers of fabric. So naturally I grabbed some calico and folded it until it had 8 layers. HOLY MOLY....

Garden Party from Red Carousel

A few months ago I worked on a custom piece based on the faux moss table numbers I offer in my Etsy store. I created this number 4 and sent it off to it's new home in Singapore. I had no idea that a few weeks later I would be delighted to find these beautiful photos sitting in my inbox. 

This AMAZING table display was created by Red Carousel
Here's the number I made happily sitting amongst some beautiful dragonflies cookies by Colour it sweet and stunning florals by Fiona Treadwell
