A travel bag

When I started using these stamps I just couldn't get the idea of making a bag out of my mind, these stamps are just perfect!

To make the bag I cut a pocket out of some material I had and stamped the map and enjoy the journey in Versacraft Black ink, once stamped I heat set them to ensure they would be permanent.

Onto three scraps of different materials I stamped the words Paris, London and NewYork I then backed them onto Heat'n'Bond and then cut them into tags (I used my Sizzix for this). I then placed them on the pocket and ironed them into place. To ensure they would not move I stitched around the edges of the tags in a tan coloured thread and stitched a cord on there too.

Once I was happy a sewed the pocket onto a calico bag with my sewing machine.

Now think of all those plastic bags I will save on!
