Mixed Media Mini-Bags

I'm still playing around with those crocheted roses from last week.  I decided I wanted to use one on a bag, and it took me a while to decide what to do for leaves.  Rather than add crocheted leaves, I wanted to leave the flower plain so it could be removed from the bag and pinned to something else.  I finally decided to use my Yudu and screen on the leaves.  This is what I wound up with:

The little bag is about 5.5" square.  I got mine in a multi-pack at Michael's.  My leaf design came from the Autumn Flourish SVG set from Lettering Delights.  I cut it from some outdoor vinyl, which I then adhered to the top of the Yudu screen.  I used Olive Yudu ink to screen print the leaves.  It's a bit darker than I wanted, but the other two greens I found didn't look as good.  After drying, the ink should be heat set so the bag can be washed if necessary.

Finally, I simply used a safety pin to pin the flower from the inside of the bag.  This would make a great little gift with a set of note cards tucked inside.
