August Kraftyhands Blog Challenge

This month I thought that as the title is 'Anything Goes' I  would try enlarging and printing an image to sew on a bag.

I created my image using the copy facility on Adobe and also added a background. I put the design together using Word.

It was then printed onto transfer paper and then ironed it onto plain cotton. I  sewed the cotton onto an existing bag which I think I bought for a £1. I left the top open and trimmed the edge with blue ribbon. The lovely apple buttons were in a huge bundle of buttons bought from Create and Craft when it first started.

The pocket it created at the front is just the right size to fit an ipad or tablet in.

The CD used is Equestrian Events.

It is the first time I have every really had a try at copying the images and playing around with them. The images remained excellent quality to resize and play with.
