I found this cute little bear in my stash when I was reorganizing my stash...it was one of those freebies you got with a purchase...and I thought it would be cute to incorporate it on my paper bag for LESSology Challenge #61: Bag Collector.
I started with this sturdy kraft paper bag from Kiehl's. I cut patterned papers to fit the bag on both sides and ran them through my Xyron creative station for an even layer of adhesive.
For a pop of colour, I added a remnant piece of felt from my stash and some colourful polka-dotted ribbon. The black cord handles didn't match my colour scheme so I braided some twine to make new handles for the paper bag.
I added some washers both as reinforcement as well as a decorative feature.
I thought it would be fun to have the teddy bear wear a diaper so I enlisted my mother's help to fold a nappy with some remnant fabric. :)
