Something different today - no paper involved! When I was in Florida last month I came back with a whole hoard of goodies - I couldn't actually fit everything in my suitcase and ended up mailing a package home. One of the goodies was this lovely felt bag. It was given to me by my friend Kymberlee (The Paper Midwife) - well actually it was from her mum.
I couldn't wait to get it home and start playing with it, but what to do HTV? Rhinestones? Finally I settled on using some of the mass quantities of felt I'd been given (also courtesy of Kymberlee's mum.) As the Silhouette does not cut felt (unless someone tells me otherwise) I had to find another method (and no I do not do well cutting out mass quantities with scissors.) So I turned to one of my Sizzix dies and came up with this.
I cut the leaves freehand and sewed the swirls by hand (as you can tell I AM NOT MUCH OF A SEAMSTRESS.) Here is a close-up of one of the flowers.
Overall I pretty pleased with the way it turned out - and it's fun once in a while to get out of your 'comfort zone'.
Thanks for stopping by.
