More Big Shot Quilting

I hope everyone enjoyed wonderful Christmas and New Years celebrations with family and friends. It seems that we prepare for so long and it's all over in an instant!
We had a house guest Christmas week and it was exhausting!
After Christmas I decided to try and make one of the quilted purses that have been popping up all over Stampin'Up! blogland. A few weeks before Christmas I bought a new sewing machine. So I was all set to give it a try. I used my Big Shot and the Scalloped Square die to cut out my fabric. The Big Shot honestly slices through that fabric like a hot knife through butter! I think cutting the fabric is the most tedious part of sewing. I believe I had all my fabric cut out in a matter of minutes!
Making these bags is so addicting. They come together really quickly and would make a fantastic gift for anyone. I think the most difficult part of making one is choosing the fabrics. There are so many beautiful fabrics out there. I have renewed my desire to sew. I have another project I made with the Big Shot and the Scallop Square die. I'll show you that next time. It was a very special item for a very special young man. Nope, not a purse!!

Such an awesome purse. Love your fabric choice--looks very springy on this -2 degree day. Where did you get a pattern from?

Gosh I'm super impressed! And I love the bag! Years ago when I was offered the gift of some card making classes I was going to suggest quilting classes instead, but thought that too forward, so ended up going for the classes (after refusing them in the first place), and now I see I can use my Big Shot for sewing/quilting too! Gosh!
