Hopping with Hilary

This week Tombow is hopping with guest designer Hilary Kanwischer. I have been a fan of Hilary's for a long time and have followed her blog as well. Everything she creates inspires me and I know you will be inspired as well as you view her projects and blog.

If  you arrived here from Tombow's blog, you are right on track. If not, be sure to stop by there first.

Today I am sharing a project I made using the tops of lunch bags that I had cut off to make purse bags with using the bottom part of the bag. Normally I throw the tops away, but I thought maybe I could come up with a project to use the tops

I sewed one end shut and then covered one side with patterned paper using Tombow's Stamp Runner Permanent Adhesive. I even used the adhesive for adhering paper to the clothespin. I used 1/4 of a Power Tab to adhere the button to the clothespin.
 
Here is a view of the bag open 

 
Would you like a chance to win some adhesive? Be sure to leave a comment on each blog. The winner will be announced Friday on Facebook.
 
 
Next up is Melissa's blog.

  6. Great Job!!! This would be a great project to do with kids and let them decorate their own bags. How fun would that be and the kids would love it. Thanks for the inspiration.
