Hello Friends, How are you? I hope you had a wonderful weekend and if you celebrate Easter I hope it was a special.
Sewing…yes please. Before I fell head over heels with stamping I did some needle point on canvas. Over the course of the last few weeks I have been doing a little traveling so instead of packing my markers *gasp* I took some sewing. With Simon Says Stamp’s new “Spring Plush” all I needed to do was cut the felt and pack some thread.
The dies are large and a wonderful size … easy to work with too. Love how the holes for the sewing are cut so stitching these babies are pretty quick. For my Daisy, Bloom and Flower I backed each felt flower with some card stock and or fun foam. I wanted the flowers to be stiff and glue easily to my card base.
Every few months or so I have a few friends come over to my house to sew. They are going to love these sweet bunnies and I think bunnies are good for all seasons. I couldn’t resist add some troll like hair to one of them.
For some reason I love these carrots … I wrapped them in some re-purposed stamp packaging with some jelly beans for little goodie bags. (see further down in the post)
As you can tell I really do love to sew. These little “Spring Time Baskets” were so fun to sew. I stuffed them with a chocolate carrot, kleenex, mini markers and a pencil topper. Just enough to say I love you to family members.
I am so happy I saved a ton of the packaging that comes in my 4×6 stamp sets. It was the prefect way to hold all the contents in my baskets and present the bunnies and carrots.
Thanks for your visit today and I hope your Monday is off to a good start. Hugs, Kathy
