It's all on the Bag !!!

Happy Sunday everyone.........I was a bit worried I was not going to be able to post today due to problems with blogger, which closed down my PC. 
Anyway, here I am with a cotton Tote bag that I made to store my scarves/socks etc. ( I have not quite decided which, but It's likely I will make more of these as gifts x (  I am a bit of a scarfaholic and literally have hundreds !!!  Ssh its my secret !! )
You will see a few photographs below which show gorgeous layers of fabric, lace , stamping and embellishments.

I used Archival ink to stamp on the fabric, which I frayed around the edges.

 This 'forgotten' stamp is from Creative Expressions and is called Artsy Floral, by Sam Poole

  12. What an enchanting make, Annie - the stamps look beautiful on the fabric. I'm another scarf-aholic, but many of mine are big thick woolly ones, so I'd need a bin bag sized tote I think!! Such a lovely creation, and thank you so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.

  14. I adore this project! That lace at the top is so elegant and the stamped text is beautiful! You added so many classy elements here and I love how you pinned the key and charm to the bag. I also got a kick out of your write-up and smiled at your scarfaholic confession! Stunning piece and entertaining post and I'm so glad you shared your creativity with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
