Autumn Gift Bag & Video by Cathy A.

Hello!  Cathy Andronicou here today.  I am in love with all the SRM bags, be they burlap or canvas.  There are so many possibilities and creative ways they can be used.  I want to share how to felt onto a burlap bag and have done a mini felting tutorial to go with this post and a video too!

To recreate this project, die cut the leaves and owl from various shades of felt, place a felting brush inside the bag and then use a felting needle to attach the pieces to the bag - see video. You can see that I have only felted down the centre and vein lines of the leaves to give more dimension to the leaves.

Love how the bag looks all plump with goodies!  And how the dimension of each leave stands out!

Layer the punched pieces using adhesive and add stickers from the Fall sentiments set.

Don't you love how this Sizzix Owl 2 die fits perfectly on the SRM medium burlap bag?  I do! 

To affix the Punched Pieces, punch a hole in the top and thread bakers twine through, tie into a bow and attach to burlap bag with glue.

And here's a video that walks you through felting the leaves on this bag from start to finish.
