I think many of us have seen the sweet Scallop Square bags that can be created with the Big Shot Die Cut Machine and the Scallop Square Die from Stampin’ Up! (check out my bag from a year ago).
But this winter I decided that I needed a small tote that’s a little wider than the regular Scallop Square size. No problem! I’ve come up with a solution and created a Video Tutorial to show you how to make these bags on your own.
Here are 2 Video Tutorials for the Extended Scallop Square Tote. Part 1 includes directions on cutting your fabric with the Big Shot Die Cut Machine. Part 2 shows the sewing instructions for assembling your bag. Watch for Part 3, coming tomorrow, for directions on creating the Eyelet Flower Embellishment.
Yes, be very afraid, I have created a tutorial on sewing. **Disclaimer: I am NOT a seamstress, I just play one on tv** 🙂
And here is Part 2 of the Video Tutorial:
The finished tote comfortably fits a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ card, so this is the perfect tote for carrying a few swap cards at a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Event, or for making a really special set of cards for a gift.
