** repost of a guest spot I did for 12 Handmade Ornaments of Christmas last year, thought you might like to see it here!!**
When Kristen asked me to participate in the 12 Handmade Ornaments project, I started to think.. “what kind of ornament would I want?”… Then I decided it would be great to have a tree with ornaments all made from fabric from my favorite designers. After I decided that, they, of course would all have to be handbags!
Then I decided that the hand bag would make a great ornament! You could use it as a gift and fill it with money or a gift card (or if your are lucky, something sparkly!!)
Cut 2 pieces of fabric 3 1/2 tall by 4 ” wide
Iron on interfacing to both pieces.
Sew together along the 4″ side, press seam open. (this is the center bottom seam of the bag)
