Sew Suite Birthday


Today is Kate’s birthday, and being a keen crafter, I wanted to make special effort with her gift and card. I had seen a fabulous project on UStamp this week, which I knew I wanted to give a go – a cute little backpack and card by Miriam Cassell.

First the backpack:

Then the card:

Both together:

And here’s a quick shot of another package I did, as the gift didn’t fit inside the backpack! (So I filled it with chocolate instead – as you do!)

This project worked in very well with Just Add Ink’s challenge this week, which was one based on inspiration. Here’s the picture they gave us:

Funky, huh? I think this project suited that just fine.

Happy Birthday Kate – hope you have a great one!

    Wow Bron these are lovely. The Sew Suite hadn’t really inspired me but now I am going to have to change my mind. Beautifully made. PS: Thanks so much for the lovely comment on my blog.

    Love the way you used the cup cake and owl dies to make the mannequin. SU dies are so versatile. Well done with this. Too cute:)
