Be Patient with my blog as it is a work in progress for the next few days. I have a header I like and a blinkie. So now I need to completer the rest of the template. I am learning PS5 as I do this so it may take a few days. Happy Crafting ~~Misty

Since today is Saturday and I love Saturdays I have 2 projects to display for everyone. First I made a 1st ever book bag using my cricut, SCAL, buttons, steam a seam, and the adorable heart gumball file. Oh yes and a few colors of fabric. LOL 2nd is a super cute card that I fell in love with. I just love this silly little rabbit falling into a platic type egg. It is one of my favorite files.
So with cutting fabric I have found it is easier for me to go with a medium cut to give me a guide and then hand cut the rest. Once I had a template to cut from I cut out the fabric with a patching steam a seam piece. Then I layered the pieces the way I wanted them and set it with my iron. I would normally sew the edges but this bag had other ideas LOL. I used cross stitch thread to sew the buttons on so it would be thicker. I love the bag but my 3 year old daughter had laid claim to it. So I guess it now belongs to her. LOL

So for today I am throwing in a package of steam a seam 2 for an extra prize!!! I will also send todays winner a bag of buttons and some fun reminant fabric to play with.

Now you can hop on over to Corrine -
