Sew Suite Bag #2

After completing the first Scallop Square Bag using the Sew Suite fabric found in the Occasions Mini Catalog, I had a few squares left over, plus some unused fabric, so decided to make a smaller version of the previous bag.  This time I added a closing flap decorated with flowers cut from the same fabric and the Flower Folds Die, then centered a large button on the flower.  I haven't decided if I will use this bag for myself, or just use it for display, then sell it.  My younger daughter thinks I ought to give it to her.  What to do, what to do?  Well, I guess I'll just have to make a decision, but not until I use it for display first.  Look for me at the Knights of Columbus in April.  I'll pass along the details later.

Happy Stamping,

Sew Suite Bag Complete!

As promised, here is the bag I made from the Sew Suite Designer fabric introduced in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  This is a special gift for my Aunt, an avid seamstress.  The fabric features pattern figures, buttons, and sewing stitches.  The bag will be great for using as a purse, or for just a tote when going to sewing classes.  I do still have to do some trimming of extra threads, but I think it turned out rather cute. 
     There is another fabric choice called Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric that also has coordinating Designer Series Paper and stamps.  Wonderful gifts and coordinating cards, scrapbooks, and decor are just an idea away.

Happy Stamping,

Sew Suite

     Do you have a sewing enthusiast in you family or circle of friends?  The fabric shown here is offered in the Occasions Mini Catalog and part of the Sew Suite collection.  These pieces are cut and ready to sew for a Scallop Square Purse I'm making for my aunt, who is quite the seamstress.  She'll appreciate the buttons, patterns, and stitches.  There are also coordinating stamps and Designer Series Paper in the collection, and although I haven't bought them yet, I am strongly considering them.  They are so cute!
     I'll be working on this purse this afternoon, so be watching for a picture of the completed project!
     Don't forget that you can also earn FREE stamp sets now through March 31.  For every $50 in merchandise ordered, you can earn 1 FREE set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  If for some reason, you're not totally happy with the selection, there is a list of stamps from the Idea Book & Catalog that can be substituted.  Many, many choices are available.  You can order through me and I'll place the order, or you can set up an account with Stampin' Up! and order through my website.  Just click on the Shop Now button in the sidebar.

Happy Stamping,
