The project I am sharing with you this month is a purse that I made from an old pair of jeans. I wanted to share with you non-sewers out there, that you CAN sew! Start easy with little "cheats." For instance, I did not have to put in a single zipper, or construct any pockets.
I just took the best of my old pair of jeans and repurposed them by sewing the bottom of them with a straight stitch--creating a pouch for my purse, and embellishing them to death with girly flowers and buttons. YOU CAN DO THIS! I used fabric from my Wanna Be a Cowboy 2 collection for Riley Blake Designs.
This is a close-up on the shoulder strap.
Blog Hop and Contest Info:
Now there are six more blogs you need to hop through this month! There's lots to see...and like I said...some have sneak peeks of my new stamps for Unity Stamp Co. As you hop through, don't forget to leave them a comment...that is how you enter into my contest this month. I'm giving away a special selection of sticker sets from my collections with Creative Imaginations. You will get an entry for each place you leave a comment, starting with my blog, through my creative teams' blogs, and one last opportunity for an entry if you post on my FB page. I will pick a winner on Monday July 18th, and announce the winners on my FB page on Tuesday, July 19th.
Also...stop by Leslie Langdon's blog for a special sneak peek at one of my new Spellbinders sets, she would love it if you would leave her a comment.
