Project Mondays

So I have seen so many cool projects lately with felt and the Big Shot that I had to give it a try!
For my first one I think it turned out pretty great! I totally copied this from Janet Wakeland
I saw what she did, and went for it! I didn't really check out her directions ( I am sure she had some) but just jumped in and made my own!
This one is going to be for my girly products in my purse ( you know what I mean) lol! I got that great idea from another talented lady Connie Stewart

So I know you are dieing to figure out how I made this, right???

Okay to start you will need felt... and sense I have been seeing so many cool things lately I figured I better get more than just the sheets from the craft store so I went to Wal-mart ( just happened to be in Eugene yesterday, how handy! )

BUT you wont need this much for this little project! just a sheet that is about 5 x 12 inches long. I used the fancy favor box to get the cool scallops on the top of my pouch.

This is what you get once you run it through your Big Shot!

You will need to cut off the bottom of the "box", however next time I make this I think I will fold over the bottom edge, no need to have all that waste!
Next I used a piece of Pink felt and ran it through with the Flower layers with leaf die.

I used Brown thread to sew my pouch closed. I wanted the thread to show. I stitched along the side then the bottom to close the pouch up.

Once I had my pouch all sewn up I added my flower that I had cut out, and then I added a flower and leaf from the Sweet Pea stitched felt pack from the Occasions mini catalog. I love that stuff!!
To finish it all off I added an adhesive Velcro to the inside so my "stuff" doesn't fall out!

Hope you liked this weeks project! Please tell me what you think! Want to make one? Let me know!
