This Ones For The Girls

Happy Wednesday to you, and can I get a "hoo-ray" for fabric from all of my fellow fabric junkies? This week the Be Inspired Challenge at cuttlebug challenge blog is to use fabric in any way on your project. I warmly invite you to play along, for more details or to enter click here.



My project is a gift for the girls of my Thursday group, the Hen house crafters. shhh....don't tell them its a secret! They cant find out until I give them their chocolates tomorrow! I have used Mel's template for her bucket bag to hold the chocolates in,{love this template} I embossed my bucket with the plum blossom folder, and added a scalloped ring around the handle. Just a thin strip across the front with the "friends" image from Stampin'Up!s vintage vogue would be pretty enough. But hey this is all about fabric!!


I saw some sweet tiny felt hearts on Melanie's blog, and wanted to make larger hearts out of velvet and chenille scraps.I ran the bigz tipsy hearts sizzix die through my bug cutting out layers of fabric and felt. I used mono multi to glue the layers together, then... started piling it on.  buttons, ribbons, roses, and sweet pea stitched felt from Stampin'Up! If you don't have the bigz tipsy hearts die, you could of course cut out your hearts by hand, they would be just as delicate and special.



I hope you will join us this week and dig through your beloved fabric stash, Or go shopping and find a new obsession..ahhh fabric I do love thee!

You are rockin' the fabric challenge, Girl! This was a difficult one for me. I love all the hearts you made too. Fun and fabulous :)

I've been thinking of you A LOT the past few days. You would be miserable if you were here in VA. We still have our power (thankfully), but you would surely be a human popsicle ;)

Shantaie, I've been looking for the right moment to buy the die cut you used in this project. I just fell in love with all of your small purses and the little details you used: the fabric-hearts, buttons, ribbon ... everything!!
TFS!
