I’m not sure blinged is actually a word, but that’s what my Mum did today when she was visiting.
She got the insulated lunch bag free at the Innocent Fete/Festival/Fair about 7 years ago and had drawn some flower outlines on it with an idea to paint them in – that hadn’t happened so I offered my scraps drawer, my new craft table (out for its inaugural use) and my bead box and off she went.
The flowers were simple cut out shapes layered up and sewn through the centre with embroidery thread left long as ‘stamens’ or ‘stigma’ or whatever they are called. My mum then added beads, glued them to the bag and added some large flower sequins for a bit of glamour.
I think the result is pretty cool (though my photography doesn’t do it justice!) Shame my own free lunch bag is much more the worse for wear otherwise I would so be doing mine too!
