Spring Time Canvas Bag

>> Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Hi Everyone!

I'm so happy to be able to share my sweet spring time bag I made using one of the canvas bags that are for sale in the DRS Designs store.  These bags are the perfect size for treats or small gifts.  Heck, after decorating the little bag, it too becomes a gift :)

I used the Woven Plaid stamp and created the background using a light blue ink.  I then used the Single Fall Tree stamp, stamping right on top of the background in brown.  The tree needed some leaves and blooms since it's spring, so I chose some pink and green buttons and sewed them on by hand.  I also sewed on some lace along the top, just by hand, and it gathers itself when the drawstring is pulled shut.

A couple of rows of half pearls finished the bottom. I'm so pleased to have unique packaging for my niece's Easter gift this year.

What will you make with your canvas bags?  Pick some up at DRS Designs today.  And, if you love a great challenge, DRS Designs is the sponsor of the Forever Friends Challenge that runs until April 3rd.  If you participate, you have a chance at winning a $10.00 voucher to the DRS Designs store!

Have a good one :)

Wow! I agree with Sue - it doesn't even look like canvas anymore! The buttons and lace are terrific too!
