Am I Crafty - or What!



Last week I was looking through some blogs and on Chic n Scratch I saw where Angie had done a rag quilt purse. I'd been wanting to do one of these and so after finding her youtube tutorial, decided to try it. I mean, hey, if someone else can do it, so can I - right! Well, not always..... Anyway, she used her Big Shot and the Scalloped Square die from SU. I don't have either one of these.....so decided to just cut the squares myself and try it. I'm thinking I really like how it came out! Does this mean I need the Big Shot and die? I don't know about that yet. I know it would go alot faster using them as it did take me awhile to cut the squares. These will make some really cute Christmas presents.......maybe I'd better start now though to get them finished by Christmas!
Do you like how I had to hang it on the refrigerator to get a picture of it! I just didn't have a lot of places I could hang it and get a good picture at the same time.

Oh, also, before I forget, there is some wonderful BLOG CANDY at Shelly and Kellie's blogs. Check them out.



Thanks for stopping by................

I love your purse- now, tell me it is sturdy- or did you put some reinforcement in the bottom??? I am curious......not that I travel with a loaded purse either- Fantastic- I love the color black and white too!

This came out terrific! And I think the refrigerator is as good a backdrop as any. No distractions to take away from your bag.

Lynn, I love this purse I had seen it at Chic n scratch but this really catches the eye. Now I will have to go back to the utube and look again.
