Hello lovely crafty friends, it’s Kate from @kittyk8 back sharing with you a fun little project I did using my delicious Wild Hare Kit this month. I absolutely fell in love with the kit Alison made for me, at first I really didn’t know what I was going to make so I decided to fall back onto something I really enjoy making and something that can be used for gift giving purposes so that when the time comes I’m all set.

She based this kit off my favourite colours so I could add my stash into the mix but truthfully I did get all that was needed. I ended up with goodies from One Canoe Two and some Pink Paislee and I really love that even though it’s two collections they flow together so well you’d think they were from the one brand. I decided to make a fun bag that can easily be adapted to any occasion. They’re really simple to make to, it’s as if you’re making an exploding box but just slightly different measurements.

Once I had the base finished I wanted to take it to the next level and decorate the front. I love adding layers, it creates interest and dimension which I love for so I simply went to town using a range of different materials from my stash to craft up my cluster to add to the front. Mostly using acetate, vellum, felt, crepe paper, sequins and my lovely die cuts from the Willow Collection by One Canoe Two I busted out a dimensional cluster to finish it off.

 

Once that was on all that was left was the handles which I simply cut some paper strips to glue them on to my bag. Seeing as originally I didn’t really have anything in mind to make with this kit I am really happy with how this come together. I have often been struggling creatively lately so it was nice to fall back onto something I knew, which helped my creativity flow.

I really hope I have somehow inspired you here today. I think using this Willow collection helped because it wouldn’t normally be something I’d buy for myself so it really pushed me to put it to good use and I hope I did it justice because it really is a gorgeous little collection. Thanks so much for stopping by, I really hoped you enjoyed my project as much as I did.

 

Much love
