Onto my latest project...purses! I've always been a bit chicken to try anything bigger than accessories that you put inside a purse, but decided to try my hand at it. In fact, it wasn't as hard or scary as I thought it would be. I looked at a purse I had and kind of backwards engineered it in my head. First I made a brown and yellow bag out of this globe print that I'm a little bit in love with!
The best part about this bag? It's reversible!
Did you notice my new Eye Spy DIY label on the front of the bag? I had some fun making waaay too many sew in labels this weekend!
After finishing that purse I decided to make another, with the red gingham and denim.
Here it is with the denim side out? I can just imagine someone carrying this to a 4th of July picnic!
And here is a shot with my new label, this one is in red.
The labels were so simple to make. All it takes is a roll of ribbon, some iron on transfer paper, a printer, and an iron. I used GIMP, a free online photo editing tool, to make the labels look how I wanted them, then inverted them so the text was backwards (that step is important). I was able to get about 50 labels off of one sheet. Then I printed it on the transfer paper and ironed it onto my ribbon. So easy!
