Firstly,A Monstrous Thank You to all the ladies behind the scenes,You Rock!!!
Secondly,Welcome everyone,Hoppers as well as Followers,and thank you for taking the time to stop in for a visit! :)
I knew from the moment of joining what my block would be,so why did it take me so long to get it done? Good question,but I will not bore you with all my excuses......
Polka Dot Safari
A while before joining the Dots On Dots Hop I pinned this tutorial,the plan was to make a Birthday Card for Jolene (my daughter,for those of you new to my blog). When I joined the hop,my plans changed! I decided to make something with the block for her instead :) (Yes sweetie this is for you,but you still have to wait until your "B" day to receive it)
The second block,not anywhere as near as challenging as the first one! For this block,the scrap bin came in very handy ;) The plan was to also make a tutorial,Sorry that didn't happen :( Maybe down the road some,or you could just use the tutorial from the link above,which I did.
A peek inside the bag,yes,that is right the blocks are now transformed into a very cute little bag!
The bottom outside of the bag,here I used some of my Sugar and Spice (the aqua with red dots) and a charm square from a dot swap :)
Here is the finished Polka Dot Safari bag! The plan was to take photos outside,but it got dark,so the sewing table had to do.
The second block is on the outside back of the bag. The handles are made from the little scraps left over from making the trees on the front.
A side shot,which shows off the handles better :) So there you have it,the Polka Dot Safari Bag :) Hope you enjoyed your hop around my blog ;)
