Hey there SW friends,
I decided since it is spring and Easter is also approaching,
I wanted to make my girlfriends gift "purses" with candy in them.
Because I am super rad like that~
I fell in love with this Purse With A Circle Handle and knew
I wanted to make my "baskets" out of them.
Now you can see I stitched mine on the tooling....when I say I...
I mean I bribed a friend to do it!
I drug her to a really boring event and put a needle in her hand...
then bought her pizza- so thank you Melissa Cook, you all
can appreciate what a great job she did!
The perforations are perfect to stitch with needle and thread.
After the front and back were stitched, I folded all the edges over and
covered them with strong adhesive.
Then I also covered the sides with adhesive for extra sturdy
sticking since I was going to put candy in it.
You can find Samantha's awesome tutorial HERE.
I attached the sides.
Then followed the same ideas with the adhesive for the button flap.
I pressed inside with my fingers making sure everything was adhered.
Then I attached the circle handles and added this bow.
Now there are flowers but I loved the bow so much, I just
couldn't put anything else on it.
Except a strand of pearls around the handles.
After it was completed I filled it with lace and candy-
Now who doesn't love lacy and candy!
I hope you enjoyed my project today-
I used the following products:
Xyron Adhesive, Ribbon.
