I'm sure most of you are already loyal viewers of the fantastic show DIY Dish and each week enjoy a brand new creativity dish served to you by the dynamic duo Kim and Kris!
Well, if you tuned in last week for the Craft Countdown you probably fell in love with those super cute fabric yo-yo's (who knew a yo-yo could have so many uses?). Did the fabrics look a little... familiar? Yes! The lovely Kim and Kris used my Paradise collection to make a (literally!) two - minute craft and they turned out soooo beautiful!
If you missed it (or just feel like having a second round), here's your chance to watch it:
What do you think? The pillows look stunning too! I never thought just a couple of fabric yo-yo's could make such a difference... and it really does take 2 minutes!
For those of you who just hear of them for the first time, I recommend you check out the other episodes (a.k.a "webisodes"), it's inspiration freshly served week by week.
But oh wait! It doesn't stop there. This week's webisode is brought to you by non other than Art Gallery Fabrics... that is... Pat Bravo... that is... me. And if you enjoyed the Craft Countdown, wait til you see this project! The awesome twosome came up with this beautiful bag which they named "Simple Bag", and there really is no better name for this bag, it is super easy and super simple, yet so versatile since you can pretty much take it anywhere! Besides, the fact that they made a bag with my fabrics was pretty amazing, you must know by now I'm such a handbag fan.
They used my new collection, Dreaming in French to make the Simple Bag, more specifically Lime Praline, Dark Femme Fatale, Fresh Romance and Berry Coquette. Still, this is only a suggestion, have fun and dare to make your very own combinations!
And even for our beginner ladies, I found this bag to be particularly perfect for you! Watch the video and you tell me:
See? Not scary at all!
How did you like this bag? Looking forward to make one? I know some of you early birds are already starting to make some lovely Christmas gifts so why not try this? Let me know what combination you would use to give to your best friend... You can even use it this bag to carry the gifts and play Stylish Santa, hahaha!
