Cricut Tags, Bag, Boxes & More Fabric bag & Card Set

Finally as is the tutorial for this super cute fabric bag. I added a set of A2 size cards made with the Preserves cartridge. I think it is an adorable gift and it's so simple to make. Video actually shows the Sweet Treat fabric bag...So many possibilites.

To get within Youtubes time limit I had to do quite a bit of editing so I apologize if the video is choppy in places...especially at the beginning. ; )

Video Coming Soon...Fabric Hand Bag with Tags, Bags, Boxes & More

I am editing a video for you now. It was of my second bag and
it is made with the sweetest fabric. However, I think this bag looks
better as I learned a couple of things after the video. I will include my
tips at the end of the video so be sure to watch. I will get it posted for
you soon!

Fabric Bag Using Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More

My DD came up with the idea to make a fabric bag using the Cricut. This is my first try and it's not perfect, but I like it. I ended up making the pattern from TBB&M and hand cutting. I used the fit to page button on a 12 x24" mat to get it as big as I could. I left the edges frayed to give it a shabby chic look. I did add machine stitching for detail. This would be perfect to fill with small homemade cards and give as a gift.

I wanted to add....I used Wonder Under to give the bag some sturdiness and so I could fuse two pieces of fabric together to complete the inside. I should have taken a picture of the inside. I plan to create another and will do a video or tutorial, soon.

I get many questions about my chipboard. My supplier can no longer get the chipboard I love. I am now working with a new supplier and have samples coming. If it meets my satisfaction I will be making it available to you. I will let you know something soon.

Cricut Once Upon A Princess Gift Bag

Gift bag and butterfly are both from the OUAP cartridge. Of course I decided Stickles was just not enough bling and I got out the Liquid applique. Have I ever told you how much I love that stuff? ; ) My butterfly does look a little is so much easier to do when not working around a camera.
