FALL FLAIR, Autumn Spice Quilted Bag...

This is project #2   from my Fall Flair class.  I did a similar Top Note bag a couple of years ago before I had a blog.  This one features the Faux Quilting technique.  I love using our Designer Series Paper for this technique.  It uses twelve 1-1/4" squares which means you can use each side of the six different design sheets that come in our DSP packs to feature every one of them.  This one showcases our gorgeous Autumn Spice DSP - my current fave!  It makes for an adorable Thanksgiving Day favor.  Enjoy!

FAUX QUILTING DIRECTIONS (click to enlarge photos):
1.  Punch twelve 1-1/4" squares from the DSP or card stock of your choice.

2.  Dry fit the twelve squares onto a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of card stock until you have a pleasing pattern.

3.  Slide the top row off.  Apply two strips along the entire top "row" of the cardstock as show.  Beginning in one corner, apply the squares along the top row being sure to tightly but the squares up against each other.

4.  Repeat step #3 with the second row of squares and then the third until all squares are secured.
5.  Using a marker, draw X's for faux stitching, being sure to connect the X's to each other as shown.

6.  Run the patchwork piece face down on the Top Note die through the Big Shot.

7.  If desire, run the patchwork piece through the Big Shot in the Petal-a-Plenty embossing folder for a "quilted" look.
