I know I am. ;) One fun and super cheap thing I like to do is make myself matching accessories for my summer trips to the beach ect..
Last month I made a fun placemat purse. You can pick up a placemat for a few dollars, add some ribbon, and in about an hour have a fun little handbag.
Here's what I started with (adding the yellow ribbon):
Supplies: placemat, Bo Bunny button and double dot ribbon.
I wanted the scalloped edges to show so I sewed along the edges of both sides to close up the placemat. You can also turn inside out and sew that way as well. Once the sides are sewn up sew on your ribbon handles.
Next use Fabri-Tac to add a strip of ribbon along the top with buttons at each end. Finally, add the ribbon flowers adhering them with Fabri-Tac as well. For a tutorial one how to make the flowers see this post. :) Just adhere directly unto the purse instead of on the paper circle.
Here's my version from last month again:
And while I was creating the purse I thought I d a matching checkbook cover. Here's what I started out with:
Supplies: Flutter Butter Honey paper, double dot ribbon, and clear checkbook cover
Just cut the paper to fit inside the clear cover. Make two ribbon flowers & leaves
and adhere to front and you're done. :)
Have fun creating!
