Heh, and I thought I was the only Lush addict! I discovered them whilst living in the UK in 1999 and, last week, was able to step foot in a Lush store for the first time since then (discovered the phenom had made its way to the Georgetown area of DC). And a ridiculous number of those ocean-y bath ballistics followed me home!

Who, you? I go to THE SAME LUSH AS YOU DO! Wheee! Seriously, the one in the same block as the Barns&Noble? I love that place to death.

...Oh. I did have a point. Right- Love the bag- it's so cute! How'd you get it so flat? Did you just laminate it, or is there some magic thing I don't know about?

I'm so glad every one loves it. I'm in australia, and our vip night is this saturday night. its an interstate thign so its pretty big. there are some pretty hardcore lushies out there. i can't wait to craft more lush stuff. I used plastic fabric that i baught from the big fabric shop over here. basically i cut two pieces bigger then the paper,  held then together with bobby pins and sewed them with a straight stitch. the only thing to note is when u sew, u need to put a piece of baking paper/tracing paper down underneath, and tear it off the seam afterwards. Do u want a tute?? i'm happy to do one the next time i make a big like this. I would kill for a japanese, chinese vertion of the lush times to make a bag with , that would be the best!

I briefly wondered if there was enough Lushness in that store to share, but I grudgingly admit I can't afford to buy their whole stock! Wink

Why is this necessary? (Just curious, mind you! Cheesy)

That's fantastic! I can practically smell the ballistics from looking at the pix. I for one would love to know more details on how you did it. It would be so cute to do small ones with origami paper, or big ones with collages, or comics...oh dear, the possibilities are endless!

the baking paper stops the plastic sticking to the machine. without your sewing in the one spot forever!

so baking paper? I have been trying to pin a strip of interfacing to the edge and it does NOT work. : ) do you have to pin the paper to the stuff or just make sure it stays underneath your project? It seems a bit tricky but perhaps I'm just making it more difficult than it should be...
