Have you ever browsed a scrapbooking store, perusing the pretty prints, and thought they might look wonderful as fabrics? Well you weren’t alone in having that idea! My Mind’s Eye is a scrapbook paper company that decided to make their designs do double duty as fabric prints. Now you can make wearable crafts with those gorgeous patterns. They’ve even made adorable Ruffle Bag Kits to show you exactly how you can use their fabric to create fun, floral tote bags.
Sewists and scrapbookers alike will be happy to hear that the My Mind’s Eye Pink Ruffle Bag Kit is on sale for only $12.99 this week! That’s less than you would pay for a new handbag in stores, and the kit will give you several hours of enjoyable sewing time. With this kit, you’ll get to use your favorite scrapbook designs to make a feminine ruffle tote bag. The bag showcases several different fabric patterns, including a few small pink prints, a gutsy brown floral print on the top ruffle, and a colorful polka dot strap. A layered fabric flower, secured in the center with a pink button, embellishes the top ruffle.
The Ruffle Bag Kit has all the fabric, patterns, and instructions you need to create one Ruffle Bag. You don’t need to fret about matching the fabrics properly or buying the right amounts. They’re all included! All you need to do is cut out the pattern pieces and sew them together. You’ll need your own sewing supplies to create the project, but the embellishments are included. One of our favorite things about this bag is that it’s made from 100% cotton fabric, so you can wash it easily. We all know how grimy a bag can get when you carry it everywhere, so it’s really nice that you can just toss it in the laundry!
