Irish Coin Bag

>> Friday, March 11, 2011

Happy Friday!

Have y'all seen these terrific little canvas bags on the DRS Designs site? This is what I did with one. I thought it would make a great little bag to put these gold wrapped chocolate coins in for St. Patrick's Day. I wanted the coins to show through, so after opening one of the seams, I used a square die to cut the window in the front. The shamrock circle was stamped and colored w/ pencils on the cut out square, then I used two circle dies to cut the wreath out.

The gold mesh was stitched around the edges to a piece of acetate then the circle was stitched on top. I stitched the mesh onto the open square along with the narrow gold ribbon around the edge. The Celtic knots, shamrocks and greeting were also stamped and colored around the front. After stitching the side seam back up, all that was left was to add a little charm and bow and fill it w/ the gold coins.

If you haven't seen these little bags, head on over to the DRS Designs site and grab some. They are so much fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
