New things to try…

As part of my win from Musha-Makes, I got a £10 voucher code to use in the shop. Deciding what to get was tough, but I finally decided to get myself some things I want to try to give myself another reason to try something new.

I got:

A square bag frame. I thought these would cost a lot more than this did! I now need to find a tutorial on how to use them. Do you know any good tutorials?

Washi tape. I’ve seen this used in so many different ways. Do you use it? If so, what for? Each roll is 5m long, so I should hopefully be able to make lots with each one. My particular favourites are the flower and heart tapes. I’ll probably use them in card making, after all one of my aims for 2013 is to only send handmade cards.

Finally I couldn’t resist this:

It’s a fat quarter of a pretty Tilda fabric (admittedly still in it’s packaging). I never used to buy fat quarters, but as I’ve just made something (and will blog about it soon) out of under half a fat quarter, I have discovered that this is a way to add pretty fabrics to your stash without breaking the bank, and the size allows you to make something of a reasonable size. When I ordered it I thought it would be perfect to use to make a bag using the bag frame, but I may not. We’ll have to wait and see!

I will share whatever i make with you. What would you use these for?

  1. Mrs. M,

    I think I would make a crocheted bag lined with the pretty Tilda fat quarter. I’m not sure how you connect the frame to the bag but I’m sure you will find something on the internet. That’s the great thing about all the helpful tutorials you find on the web. I love the heart and flower tapes too; I’ve never used the tapes either. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hugs,
    Tamara

  2. this is a glue in frame, so it’ll attach really easily, but you need the correct glue. I think there’s a tutorial on U-handbag, and she also sells the glue. Check out my purses and wallets board on Pinterest, I’ve pinned loads of frame tutorials.

  3. There are loads of great video tutorials of how to fit the frames on youtube, I was watching one recently because I have got all of the equipment for mine but I haven’t got round to making it! A job for next week I think! I love that butterfly washi tape too! I have a few rolls now but I especially like using them instead of sticky tape when wrapping presents…it adds a nice finishing touch 🙂
