And I'm still in Fiskars mode...sharing the Back to School Project Of The Month I made for the September newsletter...the brief was to decorate a satchel using the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System and the Marquis Die and Expansion Pack so I took myself off on a little shopping trip to find a satchel...there were lots to choose from...cute ones and themed ones but they were either plain and very small or huge with gaudy patterns so I hopped across town to Hobbycraft where I bought 2 plain "cheap as chips at £1.99 each" burlap canvas type bags and headed home for an "adapt and overcome" adventure.
I chopped a piece out of one bag...covered it with fabric using Heat 'N Bond and stitched around the edge to create a faux flap held in place with strong Fabric Glue. I cut out straps...stitched around the edges and decorated with buttons.
the banner letterpress plate from the Marquis Expansion Pack die cut from hessian and fabric and decorated with chipboard letters...
Why is it you don't notice until you upload the photos that there's a pesky corner not stuck down...nothing that a quick press with a hot iron won't fix and yet another demo bag is snuggled up with the rest of his Fiskars brothers.And tomorrow is the "sharing mega exciting news" day...woohooo
