It's In The Bag Challenge
Edited to add: I had some time today to make some matching cards to go inside the purse. Turns out Nicole is hosting a sketch challenge contest on her blog today too so I used the sketch for the card layout. This is what I came up with. Here is a picture of the inside of the card holder too.
Today Nicole Heady is hosting a contest on her blog to create a bag of any kind. The winner will receive a$100.00 Papertrey gift card and a one of a kind embroidered shopping tote bag. When I saw the challenge this morning I didn't know if I would be able to come up with something in time but I did. This is what I came up with.
I found the directions for making a Card Purse on Juile Buhler's blog. I changed a few things though. I sewed the straps on with silver thread instead of using brads and I cut a small slit in the back instead of using a punch. I got the inspiration for the bag after seeing one like it from Jillie Willie on Melissa Phillips blog. I am planning on making matching cards to go inside the bag but they will have to wait for another day. I only had time to get the bag done today. I will add pictures of the cards when I finish them. That's it hope you like the bag and while your here check out the next post, I am having a giveaway you don't want to miss. As always thanks for stopping by and have a great night.
