Lavender Bags

 After my holiday in France I was inspired to make some Lavender Bags but didn't have the right stamp for the job, after sending a plea out on the Hero Arts flickr group for ideas of where I could get one the lovely Judy came to my rescue.  As you can see I have the perfect stamp now and have been busy making bags.
I have stamped the image with Memento Black ink and then coloured with my Copic markers. Then after stitching the bag I have tied with some gingham ribbon.
Here is another bag using some Hero Arts stamps. As Jacqueline rightly said the bags can have any design so I made some more using my Hero Arts stamps.

Hope you have a great weekend

I bet these smell heavenly, Sally! We can only grow a very few varieties of lavender here, and mine has never given us much, just a few sprigs every summer.....you are so fortunate!
