Sweet Pea Felt Shopper .......

I am not usually a fan of sewing, even having to sew a button back on drives me mad, although I did many fine and complex cross stitch and hardanger desgins before leaving it all neglected in a box in the loft!!   Last night I thought I would finally do something with this cotton shopping bag I bought a while ago, using some of this gorgeous Sweet Pea stitched felt from Stmpin' Up!

I  stitched a length of rose red stitched grosgrain ribbon across the front of the bag, then I put the felt on the top of it, sewing everything in place once I was happy with the design. I decided I would use one of the stamps from the Sweet Pea stamp set to stamp below the ribbon using old olive and rose red ink, I am quite pleased with the result and it only took around half an hour to put together!!

I will definately be ordering some more of this stitched felt, it is so pretty and has so many uses too, exceptional value at £6.50 for approx 52 pecies avaialable from the new mini catalogue until 30th September.

Don't forget about my paper and ribbon share, it has been very popular. If you would like to place an order to get some of the new colours now for just £9.95 including posting and packing,this is a one off payment and a one off commitment please e-mail me asap.
