I talked a little bit about using the Big Shot for quilting and sewing when I got back from Leadership in January, however since I’m not that great at sewing I haven’t been able to peruse it much further. In April I was able to attend a meeting held by my up-line Amy Johnson and was finally able to learn how to make one of these awesome Rag Bags. Can I just say it was way easier that I thought it was going to be.
So here’s me sewing my bag. It was so easy to cut out. I just cut the fabric in strips and then I was able to cut out 8 scallop squares at once. I loved it. We also made this awesome flower to go on the back. I was surprised at how easy it was and that I was able to do it thanks to the help of my awesome Stampin’ friends.
Then here’s the finished project. It’s awesome because you can make the bag any size that you want. You can totally customize it for your needs.
They have also been making quilts, hair bows, clothing and more. You really need to check out all the things you can do with our fabulous Big Shot.
So now I’m excited to share this with you. I’m going to be having a
Stampin’ Up! Sew Fun Fabric Open House
