Hearts and flowers bag

This is the bag that I made for the members challenge over at Charmed Craft Talk, set this time by Carmen - thanks Carmen.

I'd got this bag cut out a while ago but hadn't got any further with it & then Carmen set the challenge! It is made from a not so old sweater that had shrunk in the wash!
The above photo shows a bit of both sides - hearts & bobbles on one side & flowers & buttons on the other.

This shows the flowers & buttons side.
The flowers are felt & cut out with my Big Shot using the Build a flower Sizzix die, then sewn onto the bag. The tag is backed with dark pink felt & again cut using the Scalloped tag die from Sizzix.

This shows the hearts side of the bag & the ribbon trim which also helps to shape the bag. I blanket stiched around the handles again in the co-ordinating dark pink wool to match.

This shows the magnetic clasp & also the felt ball that I cut in half & sewed either side of the fastening.
