Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!
We like to re-cycle when we can, both in the warehouse and at home. So when I purchased a new pair of shoes recently and they came in a fabric style bag....Ooooooh I thought!
When I got home I turned the bag inside out, well it had the shops name printed on the outside and that would be no good!!
The bag had totally lost it's shape so with a warm iron I pressed the folds back into shape - perfect.
Now for decorations, simple and elegant I thought. Our Jumbo Ric Rac (HERE) had only just arrived in the warehouse, what a perfect chance to have a play. Because I had turned the bag inside out there was a nasty seam running all the way round the top of the bag. That was sorted by hand stitching red ric rac over the top.
The bag needed just a little bit more, so I frayed the ends of a couple of strips and sewed them into place as well. That's all it needed.
I have filled the bag with all the Ribbon Challenge treasure parcels that were sat waiting for me yesterday. I have not opened any, so no photos taken yet!! All can be seen on our Hobbycrafts stand at the NEC this weekend. Anyone coming to see us??
Off to Birmingham we go.......
