Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

And now, for my project! 

This Parade Elephant stamp immediately bought to mind the rich, vibrant jewel tones of the textiles of India.  Paired with metallic fabrics from Fairfield™, and the richly toned Deco Foil™, it was easy to create this unique clutch purse to add a “Touch of India” to my summer wardrobe. 

Materials:

Fairfield™ Cushioned Aluminor™- Gold  
Fairfield™ Metallic Oly•Fun™ - Red, gold 
Fairfield™ Oly•Fun™ - Sea Green
iCraft®  Deco Foil™ - Aqua 
iCraft®  SuperTape™ - 1/4” 
Fabric Fuse™ Adhesive 
Plaid® Fabric Creations™ Block Printing Stamps - Medium - Parade Elephant  
Plaid® FolkArt ® Multi-Surface Paints - Metallic Gold 

Instructions:

Cut gold Aluminor™ to 9 x 12”.  

Cut Sea Green Oly•Fun™ to 9 x 12”.  Apply Fabric Fuse™ around edges and mount to back of gold fabric.  


Fold bottom edge up 4”.  Use Fabric Fuse™ to glue sides together.   


Cut strips of red metallic Oly•Fun™ 9” x 1”  Fold in half.  Mount to top edge to cover raw edge.   Mount strips to sides. 
Apply gold FolkArt® paint to Parade Elephant block printing stamp.  Stamp onto red metallic Oly•Fun™.  Let dry.  Fold top and bottom edges down and mount centered over top flap. 




Add piece of double sided tape along bottom of front flap, over the red Oly•Fun™ strip.    Apply Deco Foil™ over tape.  


Cut two triangles from Gold Metallic Oly•Fun™ and mount on either side of the elephant.   Apply double sided tape, then add foil. 


Add colored rhinestone accents around tips of triangles and on foiled tape at bottom of flap.
