Best Dressed: Backpack


(taken November 17th, 2019 in Atlanta)

Back in November, I was honored to be asked to demonstrate the new Best Dressed Suite at the Atlanta On Stage Stampin’ Up conference.  It’s a really fun suite and you can find it on pages 54-56 of the new seasonal catty.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite projects this week from my demo.
One is taking the cute tote/purse die and making it into a backpack!


I used a stitched Oval die to create the top of the backpack.
The long stitched belts are just looped around to create the straps.
I added a velcro dot to hold it closed.   The little yellow button is paper and from the dies.
What to put in it?  It’s just the right size for a small treat, about 3-13/4″ tall x 3-1/4″ wide at bottom (and 2-1/2″ at top) if pleated in like the backpack.
If you open the gussets for more a ‘tote’ look, it’s 4-1/2″ wide.

The paper is from Best Dressed, which is all floral on one side!  I love the bright, happy colors.  Blackberry is used so much in the winter and fall but it’s nice to see it used here for spring projects, too.

Here is the video from the home office showing this suite up close:
