Taylored Expressions February Release Day: Sack It - Chick

Hello! Welcome to the first day of Taylored Expressions February Release Day! We are releasing 7 new stamp sets, 11 new dies and 4 new cutting plates! All products are available in the store now!

I have one final release project to show you. This one uses Sack It - Chick.

I made this entire sack out of Taylored felt! The sack was created with the Sack It to You die set. I started by cutting out the 2 pieces of the sack and adding some Best Glue Ever to the seams. The glue actually helped to stiffen the felt a little. Once the glue was dry, I blanket stitched the sides and bottom with some yellow thread. Once I was finished, I sprayed the entire sack with Stiffen Quick to make it more stand better on its own. I also "stiffened" the handle. It took a few hours for it to dry, but once it was dry, I was happy with the result! The sentiment is from Big Bold Easter and was stamped and die cut with Banner Stacklets 1. I stitched 2 banners together and added it to a Doodlebug Tangerine pixie.

To complete the sack, I decorated the front of it with the pieces from Sack It - Chick! I filled the sack with some See's suckers.
