stamped fabric gift bag.

This project was completely inspired by the Paperartsy Mini sewing background stamp. I made the bag from some oddments of fabric that I had. The yo yo flower is so easy to make and you don't need any special equipment.

To make a yo yo flower, simply cut a circle roughly twice the diameter of the required flower (draw round a saucer). With the wrong side facing you turn a small hem towards you and hold in place with a simple running thread, all the way around. pull up thread and fasten off. finish with a large button.

The main image is also a Paperartsy Mini.
I am entering this for Wednesday Stamper's "mixed media" challenge

  4. Blimey youve been busy since Ive last been on here!
    I love your bags and I would love to try and do one but cant see myself coming up with anything half as good as this.
    I still think you should set up and an Etsy shop!

    So wonderful bag. Love them.

  6. Gorgeous bag Joanne!!!! yoyos are fun!

  7. Great bag! I love the idea of stamping it!!! (I'll try this when I get my stamps out again... they are put away until I have a bit more space and time for them). Also, I picked up yarn today for the next couple of projects, so stay tuned. A pattern will be coming your way before long. Have a great trip, by the way!

  8. your bag is so adorable! love the yo-yo accent too! Have a great weekend!
