Today is September Release Rewind for Paper Sweeties! I tell you I had so much FUN making this little project for my niece, Sophia! This special little felt purse with the interchangeable sweeties and tags is going out in the mail for her birthday!
I bought the purse at Hobby Lobby on clearance for only $2. I sewed a clear plastic panel on all three sides and left the top open to tuck in little Sophie. Ribbon was glued to the sides of the clear panel. The other sweeties, which are Emma and Abigail were paper pieced, also. Sweet Cuts dies were used for the girls. And, I just LOVE the sweet cuts, which make it so much easier than fussy cutting! These dies are now available for purchase!:-) And, for your shopping pleasure you can purchase bundles for wonderful savings! For Sophie's outfit I used the stamp set, You are Special Little Emma on the left is wearing the outfit from the stamp set, Live, Love, Grow. And, Abigail on the right is in the outfit from the stamp set, Enjoy Your Day. Felt flowers were die cut and glitter brads placed in the centers. Little felt hearts with gems for added interest. The tags are from the Little Wishes stamp set. For the final touch I added ribbon and brad to the strap.
