This post is about another sewing project. In the past few weeks I have been very busy sewing (I completed several sewing projects) as well as working on designs for Valentine cards.
I decided to make this bag after buying an Alphabet Adder puzzle intended as a Xmas present.
I looked at the box the puzzle was in and though that it would be much nicer if I made a bag for all the little wooden pieces to put in. I wanted to make it fun and colourful and of course, the picture itself had to be recognizable. I drew the shape of the adder onto Heat Bond Lite iron-on adhesive. Then I cut the picture into pieces. I chose bright colourful materials, first attaching the piece of the iron-on adhesive to the material of my choice and then attaching the material to the bag. I also added a smiley sun to the picture. Draw a circle onto the iron-on adhesive, cut it out, attach it to a yellow material and then to the bag. Using sewing machine I sew sun's rays directly onto the bag. To make sure that the materials would stay attached I sew round the edges. To complete the picture I stitched black beads on as eyes of the adder and sun. And at last, don't forget to hand stitch smiles onto the adder and the sun.
The puzzle itself is very well done and is a great idea teaching kids alphabet and numbers (numbers are on the other sided of the adder). If you like you can purchase it from my online shop. Just click on the picture on the right for more detail.
I have set up and online shop - CRAFT MAGIC ONLINE SHOP- on my blog (top right corner). You can now purchase many crafting supplies right here. The shop is powered by Amazon, so you would be making the purchase through Amazon. I have just selected (and sorted into various categories) crafting products that Amazon sells. My blog's shop is divided into 3 parts; paper crafting and scrapbooking supplies, crafty kids (offering variety of beautiful crafty kits and products designed for children) and sewing and patchwork supplies.
