My creation for this month's Frosted Petunias Artful Bag Challenge is truly a light bulb above my head creation.
Package to finished Artful Bag Challenge piece for June took about 20 minutes of project time.
Here's how it all began: About a week ago, after My Guy finished munching package of giant Smartie candies, I spied the wrapper still laying on his desk.
As an aside I have to mention that it would still be laying on his desk if I hadn't absconded with the thing.
His trait of a desk covered in everything, including dust bunnies bothers me, but I have learned one thing: When you have a man who keeps everything on his desk ... you have a wealth of old packages and wrappers anytime you need them for art projects.
Anyhow, the Smartie wrapper drew my attention with its bright colors and carnival-like design.
All that Ou! and Ah! was translated in my mind into this rhinestone fringe-embellished, draw-string pouch! I know that a cute Flapper in 1923 would have loved this pouch!
Or, maybe we should say that if I was a cute Flapper in 1923 I'd love this silly, simple, colorful pouch!
While you zoom off to create your own Artful Bag for June I think I'll try to make a real version of this little pouch.
Cross your fingers for me because while I'm not too bad with a tape glider ... I am half-assed at best with a sewing machine.
