Gaby Abby Challenges with SEI Week 3

Welcome to another Gaby Abby Challenges sponsored by SEI

This week the Challenge is Monsters!!
create anything with a monster, cute and scary monsters welcomed!

I created this treat bag with a white lunch bag.

Used just a regular white lunch bag
purchased at Walmart for around $2 a pack of 50

Cut bag at 5 3/4" h

Cut DCWV black card stock at 5 1/2" w x 6" h
(bag is 5 1/4" w)
You can cut any measurement that you like and go from there.
[for the back of the bag I only used the black card stock, I did not decorate- your choice!]

Cut Core'dinations meadow (green) card stock at 5 1/4" w x 5 3/4" h

Cut SEI Monsterville Susie Street 8-4705  at 5" w x 5 1/2"
double sided- and used stripes side
I than sew the SEI Monsterville Susie Street 8-4705 card stock to the black
card stock using my new Janome Mini
(NOTE: I have not used a sewing machine in 20 years-- I still have my Singer, the one I used to sew baby clothes for my now 29 year old daughter!- I got into grad school, crocheting and cross stitching!-- so with no practice at all I was able to thread it and start sewing!  BIG mistake!!  -- you can see that my stitches are two tight and crooked!! I should have practiced!!!!)

To decorate I cut a strip of 1 1/2" h strip of black card stock, the meadow card stock cut at 1 1/4" h and the SEI Monsterville Susie Street 8-4705 dots side at 1" h and sew together
Do not judge me by my sewing!!! lol

The embellishments or monster, balloon and butterflies were cut by my DH from the (he loves to be part of it!)
SEI Monsterville Flying Circus 8-4704
