Patchwork Purse - My Final MTME post 55

Mona Pendleton | Friday, May 7, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | ,

***I have 2 posts today - if you are looking for my Just Us Girls post - Please continue to scroll up - Thanks :)***

Hi Everyone! Here to share my final project as a My Time Made Easy DT Member. I would to thank Lauren for the AWESOME opportunity representing her GREAT company from the beginning & extending over the past 5 months. It has been a pleasure & honor working with BOTH Lauren & ALL the My Time Made Easy DT :) I wish them nothing but the best & great success! Big Cyber Hugs Girls & Many Thanks :) Of course, I can't thank all of you enough who visited my blog & left such amazing comments on my MTME projects :) Lauren & ALL the MTME DT will be sharing projects today, so please be sure to stop by & see what they have to created :)

Here is my Patchwork Purse that I created using the © Boxed Lunch Template.

The © Boxed Lunch Template is extremely versatile just like ALL of the MTME © templates. When I first saw this template, I thought what a darling gift purse this will make!

To create this lil' tag, I cut a piece of the ©School Ruled digital printed paper using a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities Classic Squares Small die template, punched the edges using an EK Success border then after inking up several of the images from the ©Lunch Box Love Notes, I stamped them on a piece of cs cut using a Labels Four die template.

From this view, you can see the Large Eyelets that I used to loop the piece of ribbon through for a handle. Because I stitched panels on all surfaces, there is no need for any sort of latch :)

A purse can't be complete without a pocket right? So using several Spellbinders™ die templates, I created this pocket then stitched it on & embellished the purse with some more of my favorite pretties:)

Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!
