Altered Project - Jute Bag

Hey there! I know I've been missing for 2 days now *lol* Hubby had to go to Singapore on work for a week so Aneeka & I were busy spending time with him...We also met up with some friends over the weekend for play dates (for the kids) & for a catch up since we hadn't met them since our recent vacay..

I did have a lil time last nite though..and I came up with an altered project (one of my other current obsessions *lol*... I got this bag for a steal at RM5 from the Daiso shop at The Curve (Thanks Jessy for sharing with me of it's existance! ;)) and went straight ahead at making some slight alterations to it *hehe* I first stitched at the seams (cause they were kinda giving way), then sprayed some mist to give it a slightly dirty look. I then stitched a small paper doily, stuck some KaiserCraft flower embellies & leaves and finally added the pretty butterfly die cut.

I wanted to give my new bag a label *lol*..So I proceeded to label it as 'My Bag of Brushes' with my DYMO tag maker

Here it is...It's a pretty simple one that I'll be using to keeping my paint brushes ;) Hope it gives you some inspiration ;)

Materials Used :

Jute Bag
Maya Road Mist
Carla Craft Punch
KaiserCraft Flower Embellie
DYMO Tag maker
Quickutz Butterfly Die
Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes Die
Satin Ribbon
Pearl Strand
