MCT 12 Days of Christmas, Day 10

HUGE GIVEAWAY ALERT

Okay, since it's Christmas, Emma decided to give away TWELVE of her FAVORITE things to ONE LUCKY person! She will announce one of the prizes for each day in her video! So by the 12th day, you will see ALL 12 items that ONE lucky person will be receiving! All you have to do is leave your comments each day. AND if you become a new follower of this blog, I'll give you a second entry FOR EACH DAY in the big drawing!!!

**VERY IMPORTANT** 
Please leave your contact information should you be the lucky winner!!


Today I'm sharing another pant leg tote bag. {here's the first one in case you missed it} So simple and cute! I love repurposing, as you may know by now, but using outgrown, holey kneed jeans is one of my all time favorite ways to recycle. These little bags are so quick and easy to make and the girls just love them. The fringe couldn't be any simpler either. I just took a strip of the denim and cut it with scissors, snip, snip, snip, then sewed it into the bottom seam of the bag. Minimal effort, maximum impact! :)


Emma's stamps work beautifully on fabric! I used staz-on to personalize this one for grandgirl, Mila, and made this denim flower using the MCT Rolled Flower die. Had this super cute cloth covered button in my stash for the flower center and it goes perfectly with the red gingham drawstring ribbon.

This is the back of the bag. I tied the ribbon through buttons and knotted the ends not only cuz it looks cute but also to prevent the drawstring from becoming lost inside the casing. Works great.

We're only a couple of days away from the big drawing so I hope you're all caught up on commenting throughout the previous days hopping! You still have plenty of time to do that if you haven't been able to comment daily. And remember too, that if you become a new follower of Scrapendipity Studio--this blog you're on right here LOL, I'll give you an extra entry in the Emma's 12 Favorite Things drawing!! Here's the link to Emma's blog to get the full scoop and links to all previous days if you need to catch up. There is so much inspiration and fabulousness being shared, you can't go wrong with any of these ideas!! See ya there!
