Cottage Wall patchwork bag

Aren't the American's really lucky when it comes to Stampin' Up!? They have the Big Shot and dies........................

Recently on surfing You Tube I saw a couple of videos using the Stampin' Up! Top Note die to make these gorgeous little patchwork gift bags. I got totally jealous because we don't have them, but then remembered my shopping adventure at the NEC and the Nesties I bought. This is the closest Nestie shape I have to the Stampin' Up! Top Note die - woo hoo.................

I used two pieces of Whisper White, one for the front and one for the back. On the front piece I created this gorgeous patchwork effect using the Cottage Wall DSP and the Stampin' Write Journelling pen for the faux stitches. Both pieces were then die cut. To form the handle I used the both oval punches. The bag was made from an 11cm square envelope that I had cut the flap off and folded around the edges and bottom to make an envelobag. The die cut pieces were stuck on to the bag (env) and it was then decorated as shown.

I made this a while ago, so, as I am not back on top form yet, I am sitting with my feet up and catching up with stuff!!

Feeling a bit better now - Penicillin Rocks!!!
