Peace bag made using the NEW Scandinavian Cards cartridge and Give A Hoot cartridgeI

Hello, everyone!

I was actually going to post this bag over on my other blog Friday because last week was bag week over there. However, since the release came so late I decided to wait.

For those of you who are still not sure on how to get started cutting fabric with your Cricut click here to check my FABULOUS tutorial ==> Cutting Fabric with the Cricut

Once you get going you won't be able to stop making bags, tshirts, or anything else you can iron a cut on. It is quite addicting! I really feel like I have accomplished something when I make something using fabric and my cricut.

This bag was made using the NEW Scandinavian Christmas Card cartridge and the Give A Hoot cartridge. Who knew that these would go so well together!


The black canvas bag was purchased at Hobby Lobby,
I cut the dove out at using the Scandinavian cartridge at 7 1/2" and 'PEACE' out using the Give A Hoot cartridge at 4".
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have a new layout posted on my other blog. Click here to check it out ==> Courtney Lane Designs

here is a sneak peek..




 Have a great day!

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs! Have a great day!

Like the bag. I remember doing this is the 80's and making TONS of bags and shirts with fabric cut- outs. EXCEPT, then I had to cut things by hand..... NOW, Cricut does it for me! I LOVE YOU CRICUT!!! Thanks for a chance to win. :D

Hi. I don't even own a Cricut...yet. It's been on my mind. But as the mom of 3.5 year old twins, I put my wants last, and have never gotten around to purchasing one. Sites like yours tickle my creative bug and remind me that it's important to allow myself an outlet. Thanks for sharing your lovely cricut projects.
