I Just Love This ….

Milk Bottle Crate Decoration
I just love finding quirky bits and pieces for my Craft Room.  I found it in my local florist costing £5.99 and before I knew it, it was in my bag …. they also had versions with 3 and 6 bottles ……. please …..someone hold me back!

Altered Primark Bag

This is undoubtedly my finest “too much time on your hands” project. Who in their right minds, other than me, would colour in this bag while watching Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday night??!!!
Pimark Lace Effect Carrier Bag
Primark have quite a few nice shopper type bag designs at the moment, priced at £1.50 each, I just wish they didn’t have Primark printed down the sides! As soon as I saw this lace effect print bag I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.
Altered Primark Bag
I’ve only used ordinary Stampin’ Up pens to colour it in (both sides, yes I am quite mad!), so I think it will only be a fair weather bag, however if it did get wet and the colours ran, I think it could take on a different and probably more interesting effect. The gems are stuck on with fabric glue but to be honest I am sure a few will drop off when I use it.

…… But at £1.50, it’s just a bit of fun and it kept me out of trouble!!!

I'm going to do a sample swatch and soak it to see if the colours run and will then let you know the results  .... I don't want to be responsible for spoilt bags all over the country!!
