I don’t know if you know this……but I’m a little obsessed with Heat n Bond….I use it for sooo many different things, and I use it all the time! Well today I was thinking of what could I do for my post today, so I looked around on Pinterest and came across the ever-so-popular scrap paper flower canvas (that was actually one of the first few things I did from Pinterest) and decided to make a bag using the same technique. Well……WOW!, did it come out adorable!!! And it was SUCH a great way to use up that scrap fabric that I have. Remember my What To Do With All This Scrap Paper post??? Well, I’m just as bad with my scrap fabric. I can’t get myself to get rid of any of it!! I can’t tell you how glad I am that I do when I create things like this using it!!
To make the petals, I simply cut out a little rectangle, folded it in half, cut at an angle to make half a petal, and when it’s unfolded I had a perfectly even petal. Using this method, I cut out three different sizes.
Now, for the fun part, assembling the flower!! I purchased the canvas bag in a pack of 3 from Michaels for I believe $10, but of course used a coupon, so got them for a little over $5 . I started with the smaller petals first. I placed them all down before ironing, so I could get an idea of the spacing.
I finished it up by adding the row of larger petals around, and filling any large gabs with the smaller petals. All together, I used 12 small petals, 8 medium petals, and 5 large petals. I am in LOVE with this bag!! It can’t get any cuter (or easier!)!!
