Diamond Jubilee Crafts - Fiddle-Fart Designer Bag!

Newsprint Bag
I saw this picture in one of the Sunday papers of Cheryl Cole with a designer newsprint bag by Anya Hindmarsh and I thought it would be funny to make my own, especially as I make so many newspaper cards and save myself £190 at the same time!!!
First I put together the design using Publisher

I liked the idea of just using black and white with just the union flags in colour.  Then, just as I was about to put the transfer paper into the printer I suddenly remembered to reverse the image so that it was the right when I ironed it onto the fabric, how many times have I forgotten to do that before?!!!!
I was thrilled with how it turned out, and decided to add just a few flat backed gems for extra bling.
I am just praying that I get tickets for the Diamond Jubilee Concert … so I can use it …. for my programme and popcorn .....
