Two 4 Tuesday -- So different...yet so alike

Two for Tuesday features 2 projects that are similar in either color, theme, layout or embellishment but... with a different twist!

Hi everyone,

Here's the deal :

  • Same Colors
  • Same Ribbon
  • Same Die
  • Same Pattern

How different can two projects be using all those same things ????

So much, it's almost unbelievable... here I did it: a rag quilt purse and its matching card.

I used the Big Shot Bigz Clear Large Scallop Square to cut my Bermuda Bay CS and my fabric for the quilt purse. Did you know that you can cut through 8 layers at a time? so efficient...

For the card I created my polka dots with the ½" circle punch with Chocolate Chip CS to imitate the ones on the fabric.

As I'm always looking for different ways to use ribbon, here I made a knot to make my flower's center. For the flower, I stamped dot,dot,dot (in the spring mini) in Chocolate chip ink on Chocolate Chip CS and punched it with our new extra large fancy flower punch.

For the Rag Quilt Purse, I just followed the awesome instructions from Angie Juda Kennedy and I had so much fun I made three of them just to finish all the fabric I had.

For the handles I chose to use our large double stitched gros-grain chocolate chip ribbon so it was faster and nicer !!!
Here's a close-up after washing the purse:

Have a nice stampin' day!

Such fabulous projects!!! I love Angie's purses, but have never tried making one myself. Seeing how pretty yours is, I think I should take out my sewing machine and give it a try!!! TFS :-)
