Dotty About Dots !
. . . . . Are you as daft about dots as I am ? . . . . . . If the answer is yes then you are in for a treat this week as the Theme at My Time To Craft Challenge this week is Dots and Spots or if you prefer Spots and Dots lol (Sorry I couldn't resist. You can tell I don't get out much can't you ?). Lots of ideas went through my mind for this challenge but I ended up making this little Dotty Purse.
I like making things other than cards and like a lot of ladies I love purses and bags. This design is from K and Company Kit which I bought a few years ago. They are perfect for small gift boxes and I have made and given away several already and there are still loads left to make.
It is not obvious from this photo but I added a green and blue Tartan ribbon to the band around the purse which I was pleased to use as I have had it for about 10 years (wow). I made the handle from beads and ribbon I got yonks ago with a Magazine which were intended to make a bracelet (wow wow).The tags were part of the kit and I secured them with a metal ring.
I hope you like my little effort this week and you get the time to pop over to MTTCC and see the fabulous inspirational work by the other team member.Also a little reminder about my Candy Giveaway which closes at the end of the month - the link is on the side bar x
I hope my little purse qualifies for the following challenge :
1.Craft Your Days Away Challenge 11 - Anything Goes
I have always loved creating and making things since I was very little and I had the advantage of being part of a family with many creative and artistic talents.Sewing was my first craft and cooking has always been an enjoyable interest. I became interested in card-making and scrapbooking a few years ago. Now I can add paper-crafts to the long list of creative activities I thoroughly enjoy.I have a lot to learn so this is my crafting journey but don't be surprised if I share some of my other interests x
