Jazzing Up an Unloved Handbag with Dies and Felt!


Hi everyone, hope everything is OK.

I am on the POLKADOODLES BLOG today sharing a quick way to jazz up a plain handbag using felt and of course some fabulous Polkadoodles dies!



I used 3 die sets for my decoration; BUTTERFLY TRIO, DELICATE DAISY CLUSTER and DELICATE DAISY BORDER, and cut my felt with them several times. I chose the very patriotic combo of red, white & blue and attached everything with gel medium as I had no fabric glue. 


Ingredients:
Polkadoodles Goodies

  1. This is a completely new bag, Jane. Well done, my friend. Great color combination and lovely dies. If gel medium does not last, and since you do not have a fabric glue, you could also sew the dies on the bag. Kisses!
