Outside My Comfort Zone

For this week I decided to create a much different pinch bag. I recently joined a blog group who adheres to Edgar Allen Poe's work. The blog is titled Quoth The Raven Nevermore. Because I joined, I felt I had to try and do something that recognized the author Poe.

Here's what I came up with.

I apologize for my photographing technique. It's late but I wanted to show how the bag looks like after being constructed.

Below is the actual bag itself. It has been saved as a JPG.

The graphics used are from Ikesart. Ike is a friend whose talent goes way beyond the pale. I have seen her do macabre art, along with cute stuff that is filled with sweetness and light. GRIN.

Go check out her blog site. Ike's World.

Until next time...Happy Crafting.

    1. A pinch bag is a small gift bag that is pinched together at the top and sealed with Velcro. Normally, I put small candies, toys, or surprise items in my bags. I'm thinking Black and Red liquorish would be awesome inside my Poe bag.

  3. Now this would make a wonderful Secret sister valentines gift.... i'll send you my addy!
