Guest blogger: Crafty Scrappy Happy

We’re guesting on Land of Nod’s blog, Honest to Nod today! (:

Hello friends and fans of Lolly Jane!
I am SOO thrilled and honored and just plain old EXCITED to be here today!

I am Jaime and I have a crafty little blog called Crafty Scrappy Happy where I get to share my crafty adventures with my blog friends.  I would LOVE it if you would stop by—
I have a couple things that you might hear me say almost every time I post anything:
1.  Why buy something that means nothing when you can make something that means the world to you?
2.  My favorite part of blogging is making blog friends—-I truly treasure each one of my blog friends!

Sooo without anymore chatter I will get to my project for today—just a little Halloween project because why buy a treat bag when you could make one?!

Here is the final product:

{its double sided so here is the opposite side}

And here is how I did everything:

**I used a linen bag that I purchased for a dollar**

-Lets start with the print part it is a nice and simple technique I use quite often on my blog—I will send you over there to get the actual tutorial (click here) but I will share a few photos of the process.
and a little summary.

I used a laser printed image in reverse.

You cover the image with citra solv (a natural cleaner) and then apply pressure on the image (I use a spoon).

It is a nice and simple way to transfer the image!

Next I added some fun “stuff”
this is how you can make the fabric flower!

cut 4 circles out of each fabric and fold once

and then twice and finally glue down into place.

I also added a bow to the handle (I sewed lace onto the bright orange scrap of fabric.

And I sewed a row of folded tule to the top of the bag.

Anddd just in case you aren’t quite sure if you want to stop by and visit here are a few of my favorite projects:
