Crafty Ribbons and LOTV Gift bag

I cannot believe this month, its flown past! This was my project for earlier this week at Crafty Ribbons Inspiration but I just lost track of time so am here to show you it now. Make sure you pop by and enter our Advent Event-there are such fantastic opportunities to win and to see lots of inspiration for our team so well worth a visit!
Its a simple little gift bag and I made use of one of my techniques that I used on my winning entry to Cardmaking and Papercrafts Cardmaker of the year 2012 competition (Stampin' Up Category) which is stamping on fabric and colouring by painting the fabric with Acrylic paints. It is a bit more work but I think it is worth it to be able to use some of our favourite stamps in a new way and with more textures! I only used an old white sheet too so it doesnt need to be an expensive new experiment. I stamped my LOTV James Bear onto the cotton sheet with Stazon, then coloured him with Acrylic paints. I left him to dry then sewed him onto my gift bag then sewed on some of the gorgeous new christmas printed ribbon I was sent from Crafty Ribbons with a fantastic greeting to finish my project :-)
