Summer Time Craft

Hello Everyone,
Hope your summer is coming along nicely.
I've been loving the wildflowers we planted
in our garden this year.

The flowers were the inspiration for my
Whisker Graphics Design Team project
this month.

A little flower shaped treat pouch.

Don't these colors just scream summer.....?

I chose to work with the new Horizontal Stripe Middy Bitty Bag
in orange.

After tracing out the design of the pouch cut out the center
of the flower, and slip in a glassine Middy Bag.

Begin sewing leaving enough room to fill the center of the
flower with some treats.

I choose to fill my flower treat pouch with chocolate covered
sunflower seeds.

Yum....... my families favorite summer time treat.

After the flower is all full of seeds sew the opening closed,
cut away the excess bag. And you are left with a cute little
treat pouch.

Don't ya just LOVE glassine bags.........

....... the transparency!

These little treat pouches would be a super
cute party favor. Or tuck them into a lunch or
perhaps your child's backpack as they are
headed to camp. I think I'm going to put this
into a friends mail box, for no special reason
just to say hi and happy summer.
