Yep, I can. Actually truth be told, my Mom helped a little with the second project you’ll see on this post – just a little too finicky for me!
I decided that since Shelli has a fabric challenge on this month, I’d better work with the fabric and I’m loving it! So, after making many card projects, I decided I’d try my hand at making a couple of ornaments.
This first one uses the Candy Cane Designer Fabric. The base is a Scallop Circle die and I’ve sewn the outside edges together and then stuffed them with batting (thanks again Lynn for letting me know this is what the white-fluffy-stuffing-stuff is called). I also sewed a bit of White Satin ribbon for the hanger.
On the front, I cut two of the bottom piece on the Baskets and Blooms die. I folded them in half and adhered them so they’d stick out a bit. And, then I added the ornament cut from the Holiday Windows Movers & Shapers. I sewed this together and stuffed it and added a wee bit of linen thread. Cute, huh?
So I made one with the Candy Cane Designer Fabric, it certainly wouldn’t be fair not to use the Deck the Halls Designer Fabric, would it?
I again used the same scallop circle die and this time I added a cut out from the Movers & Shapers Holiday windows and sewed it directly on the base, it is pretty tone-on-tone but you get the idea. A piece of Very Vanilla satin ribbon was sewn into the base and I added an Antique Brad.
The bird is cut from the Holiday Windows Movers & Shapers and is sewn and stuffed with batting. I used the Bright Christmas stamp set and stamped “winter wonderland” on some twill tape using my Jet Black StazOn ink. I then adhered to the ornament.
