If is sits still long enough... ALTER IT!!!

So tonight was CraftNite, and for a change I actually got some things accomplished. I made the cutest hobo bag. The original pattern used a pillowcase, but I just used a yard of fabric from the $1 bin at our Walmart. My friend Lisa and her mom had made a few of them, so they gave me some much needed guidance on piecing them together. They are so darn cute. I've got fabric to make about 4 more. I'll work on those tomorrow. The pattern can be found HERE.

So... about the altering... I ALTERED MY ATG tape thingie. Well, I spent tonight taping it off and spray painting it. Once dry I'll add some rub-ons and some bling bling!! Lisa did hers too. They are gonna look so cute. And totally unique. I'm so excited about this project.

I finally placed my first order from the new catalog. Basically I ordered everything from pages 88 and 89. I just love it. I think my next order will be ribbon, the pretties, and some of the bling brads. I need to spend some time going thru some of my older scrapbook supplies and 'repurpose' them. Or get rid of them.

OMG - that bag is too cute! I checked out the pattern. What a cute idea! I'm going to have to try them . . . I think even I could make these! The girls would LOVE them! Can wait to see your tape gun!

The bags are fun to make - I need to see the smaller one you made with the bottom in it... for books - I might need one like this!

OOOO!!!! Too cute! If I bring some fabric to craftnite will you help me make one? It'd be my first project!
