I’ll tel(l you up front that this project requires sewing, which means you know I didn’t make it myself. Instead, my fabulously talented friend Annie Lee created this for me using some of the Springtime Vintage fabric I gave her (and Yes! This is one of the fabrics that is on clearance right now for only $0.99!)
Isn’t it super awesome?! I have it sitting by my craft table all the time. Though what I love about it is that I feel like even the sewing newbie like me could make this!
See, the trick to me is cutting lots of squares out of the fabric using the Scallop Square Bigz die. It gives you consistent sized pieces for your projects, its easy, and did you know you can run multiple layers of fabric through in one pass through your Big Shot?
Wha-Bam!! Talk about speedy cutting for your sewing project, right?
Anyway, the caddy is 2 squares long on each side with a divider down the middle. Then divide one half again to give you the three compartments. Does that make any sense? I think, this took 22 Scallop Squares (one on the outside and one on the inside for each square you see). She also stitched in some of the retired – so sad – stitched 5/8” Rose Red grosgrain ribbon.
Wanna see it again from another angle? Oooh… Pretty!
Now just think for a minute how expensive these totes are in the stores… now imagine how much money you save when you buy this fabric from the clearance rack for only $0.99 for 3 extra-large fat quarters. Um, yeah, you would probably save enough to buy some goodies to stuff your bag with. hee hee… or maybe that is what I would do.
PS – Did you know, that if you decided to sign up with Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator this month, not only would you get the $125 worth of product for $99, plus the free Halloween project kit, but you would also receive 20% off your order of fabric. So, those $0.99 fabric sets just got knocked down to about $0.79! Just saying!
