a cute looking and easy method to embellish clothes and bags
yay, first project in my christmas holidays!!!
for christmas, i made some tote bags instead of wrapping the presents in paper. i made this cut-out embellishment on one bag and thought it would be nice to share this idea with you. maybe it´s a new way to decorate plain clothes and bags in an easy way!!!
