1) Use the Sizzix Big Shot to cut the scallop border from pink felt. (Wool felt is easier to work with if you can find that. You can hand cut the shape as well) Apply Glue Arts Fabric Bond to the backside of your felt. Iron onto the canvas bag to heat the adhesive and bond onto the bag.
Tip: to make this child friendly…use the Extreme Adhesive Squares in the full size and apply the squares to the backside of the felt and then adhere to the bag. The Extreme Squares are designed to adhere to fabric, canvas and more!
2) Repeat Step 1 for the additional ribbons and trims.
3) Use the Sizzix Big Shot to cut the layered hearts. Add some Fabric Bond to the center of the heart. Then hand stitch the hearts together.
Tip: These can also be sewn with a sewing machine. For kids use DMC Floss for a fun look as well.
4) Adhere felt heart to bag with Extreme Adhesive Squares. Add additional felt hearts.
5) Tie a ribbon around the handle. Use the Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares to hold the ribbon tails in place on the bag.
Tip: If you do not have access to a diecut machine hand cut your shapes. Also this bag would be fun to personalize with a child’s name, Grandparents, special teacher! And best…this bag took just minutes to make and will be a favorite for years to come.
