Where did you get the pattern?
That’s the most common question in the purses and bags forum.
The pattern came from the free tempting templates at the Stampington websitehttp://www.stampington.com/html/tempting_template_index.html
It had to be purses, because the purses and bags forum is where I hang out and post. Recently I made a paper purse (for a gift of cds) and I still posted it in the purses and bags forum. And when I’ve been really, really busy and let myself goof off for 10 minutes before bed, I slip into that forum just to see… what cute stuff others are making.
Where did you get that fabric?
. My favorite of the marshmallow treat (http://www.ricekrispies.com/Display.aspx?recipe_id=1605&kic=true
) purses I created today. My (now 19 year-old) daughter bought me these Sweedish fish at Ikea. When she was little she used to like to eat uncooked pasta so I celebrated that, by using vegetable pasts for the waves and sea fronds in the fabric of the purse.
. Appliqued flowers are one of my favorite embellishments on anything, including a purse or bag. Wow is it fun making an appliquéd rose out of sticky, sticky marshmallow goo. I used a lot of Pam spray on my hands and still kept getting stuck.
. Just like in real life I ran out of material, or in this case the polka dot sprinkles. So just like in real life I rummaged around for something else to coordinate and found the multi-colored shot-style sprinkles. After wiping marshmallow goo off the cupboard, my hands, my skirt and the counter I thought the coordinated purse flap and bag turned out pretty nicely.
Though I'd like to carry one of these shopping I don't think they'll last that long.
