August already and I hope it's looking like a good one where you are. We look set for a fine week here in the south and, with the 1st week of the school holidays having flown by, it's looking like a great summer.
It's my turn to set the challenge theme at By The Cute And Girly this month and I have chosen 'The Sea'.
I ended up setting myself a bit of a challenge as well. I wanted to use a Sizzix Hello Kitty seaside die and got carried away deciding to cut the pieces from scraps of material and sew them on a bag with some ruffles for the sea.
I did iron it, honest, but ironing never was my strong point!! It was great fun to make, but took far longer than I had planned. Being green and re-using scraps was a great idea but they frayed a lot, even after I had die cut the image in bondaweb to attach them with.
The felt sun was far easier to work with and, with the addition of some of Geraldine's lovely Little Snippets butterflies, the project was complete.
