Is yours in the bottom?????

Hi folks  Today I am sharing a little sewn holder for a comb, pen & nailfile!  They always seem to end up in the bottom of my bag and I have to just about get in my bag to find them!!!  I know....I need a smaller bag don't I haha!

We are using JOFY stamps over at *The Craft Barn* this week and I got to play with SET 11. I love the fresh look of these designs but wanted to do something other than a card so why not fabric!!!

I used calico for this...its great for stamping on...and a scrap of blue cotton for the lining.  I stamped with memento and coloured in with promarkers before adding a clear glitter paint and seed beads to the flowers & butterfly.  There is a little pocket on the back for the nail file...

Happy crafting, HUGS xxx

This is mega cute and very ingenious of your Karen. I expect your nails to look divine now :-)
I've only done stamping on fabric once but this is definitely inspirational. Is memento ink permanent, so that you could wash this case or wouldn't you bother because of the seed beads?

Really different and so creative. I love it when you use fabric - it makes me want to get mine out and start creating. Even better with this is that you can use it and it doesn't just sit on a shelf!
Really like what you've done with these stamps. The more I see them, the more I like them and could imagine using them.
Enjoy your Sunday. Hugs, Juliaxx
