Polka Doodles #04: Shop 'Till You Drop

Friday is here at long last! And if that wasn't enough excitement, there's also a brand new challenge waiting for you at the Polka Doodles Challenge Blog. This one is quite special.... "Shop 'Till You Drop". Tell me that didn't make you all tingly inside! But as always, if you're not in the mood for shopping (seriously?!), you can make anything you like.

A friend just had a baby girl and I bought the little darling two pairs of booties. And to house these baby shoes I made a gift bag with papers, floral elements and a sentiment from the Dollie Daydream Girl Talk CD. Forget "mama" and "dada",  "shoes" and "shopping" will be this little girl's first words!



The bag measures 4" wide x 6" tall x 2". The central panel is 1.5" wide.
The handles are made of pink ribbon.
The flowers are from the Build-a-Fleur file in the CD. I fussy cut the flowers
and stitched them together with a buttonin the middle. Then I added some
green ribbons and adhered the whole lot down. 

And this is what it looks like from behind. Love that combo of polkadots and
flowers. This CD has so many gorgeous papers. 

I'm taking my little bag over to these challenges:

4 Crafty Girls #10: AG
Crafting By Designs: Get Your Girl On
Crafting For All Seasons #69: For The Girls
Party Time Tuesdays #156: Ribbon
Make It Monday #176: AG

I hope you'll be able to play along in this challenge. If you don't feel like making a "Shop Till You Drop" themed project, feel free to opt for "Anything Goes". Please make sure you link your work over at the Polka Doodles Challenge Blog by noon GMT on 2 February 2014.

Thanks for stopping today and I'm looking forward to seeing your projects.

Beijinhos!

  16. Great paper combo on your sweet little bag. Gotta teach this little baby girl the right things from the get-go, and love that sentiment with her tiny baby shoes. Her Mama is going to be so thrilled with this, and hope she saves it for when Baby gets older too! (I'm sure she will!) TFS & Hugs.
