Hip Hop!




 

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Cocoa Daisy Day of Inspiration Blog Hop! You should have come from Jaime Warren's blog (www.jaimewarren.typepad.com ). If you’re just starting here, be sure to go to the Cocoa Daisy blog and check out the rest of the team’s bags!

Above are a few pictures of my interpretation of the Maya Road hip bag. It is not my strength to alter things, so this was a bit of a challenge for me. But I had a blast doing some simple sewing and playing around with the color scheme and patterns and textures on this bag. In the end, I used some vintage fabric that I had saved for a few years from back in SIStv days, plus I added some new items from recent Cocoa Daisy kits. A bit of pom-pom trim, some felt ric-rac and a handmade felt bow and this cute bag is ready to house my daughter, Wyndham's iPad as she gets out and about. It's the perfect size for that and it looks cheery now too!
Seeing everyone's version of the bag was so fun for us as a design team. We hope it is fun and that you get some great ideas for yourself too!
I’m going to be giving away the scrap goodies and Cocoa Daisy stamps you see in the last photo here, so feel free to leave a comment and if you LIKE the Cocoa Daisy Facebook page and let me know, I’ll enter you a second time in my drawing! I’ll be closing the drawing on Monday the 6th of May at 8 AM EST. I’ll announce the winner here later that same day. Good luck and thanks for being a part of the Cocoa Daisy fun today. Hopefully we'll see you around the message boards, or loading things to your galley there for us to see too!
Now it’s on to Kim Stewart's blog for some more hopping inspiration!
