I love when people laugh. The internet is full of laughs. After a bit of surfing and saving, I found these awesome cartoons and then some.....not blog appropriate! I have to admit that some of this was done last year. There are a few I have printed this year and added to the ones from last year.
|I sprayed a piece of 8x11 1/2 paper with spray adhesive.|
|I cut some white broadcloth to the same measurement as the paper......|
|Ironed the broadcloth to the sticky side of the paper.|
|Positioned it in the printer.....|
|Found my saved cartoon and set it up for printing.....|
|Printed it using the high quality setting.|
|Peeled it off the paper.....(which I reused 5 more times)|
|Final product! Ready to sew into gift bags. Cartoon says....Santa! Just Another Guy Trying To Get Into Your Stockings!|
|Trial position. (Poor Mr. Potato Head left his most valuable part at home)|
|I ironed down the hem so that I could sew along the crease, to keep everything straight.|
|Pinned it into position. This bag is for my Dad's gift. I had to leave the white border on this one so that my gift would fit inside. If I was stockpiling gift bags, I would have made a smaller bag.|
|Sewed along the crease.|
|Sewed the back to the front with right sides together.|
|Ironed the top over for a finished edge.|
|Stitched as close to the edge as I could.|
|Zigzagged all the inside seams.|
|Pulled Ribbon through at the seam.|
|Your eyes aren't deceiving you. My Potato Head bag is shown below.|
|This bag has a button hole for the ribbon. I used the side seam to pull the ribbon through on all the other bags. That's what happens when slackers sew!|
|I had printed this picture last year and used my glitter paint on the left edges of the tree.|
|These two will be be gift bags for the Lavender Heat Bags that I make annually for my Dad and a few others.|
|I turned this printout into a wine gift bag.|
Happy Bag Making!
