My door needed a quick little update from my Valentine's wreath. I made this wreath with the Flower Shoppe, Martha Stewart Elegant Cake cartridge, and Birthday Bash cartridges. I traced some pennants from the Birthday Bash cartridge on to fabric. I sewed close to the trace marks and then cut out the pennants with about 1/4 in allowance.
The butterfly cut I cut out the pink and green pieces as the blackout version. I cut the green slightly smaller than the purple layer. I attached all the layers to chipboard because it was going outside.
One of my favorite holidays is coming up! It allows me to use as much pink and glitter as I want and it's artistically acceptable.
Here's a wreath I made for my poor backdoor that still had my autumn wreath up!
I took a wire wreath form and a bunch of scraps I had in the loft. I used ribbon, cotton fabric from a jelly roll, deco mesh, jersey scraps, and tulle. I cut them in strips and tied them around the wreath filling it out. The middle was looking a bit bare so I cut out a bunch of hearts on my Cricut. Most of the hearts are from Sweethearts. I glued the hearts on some bakers twine and tied that to the wreath. I had some larger heart cuts that I glued onto the wreath proper. It's perfect for Valentine's!
I've been SUPER busy preparing for the Christmas season. One of my big projects for the year was sewing aprons (or "baprons" as my niece used to call them). I used this great tutorial from 7 Layers Studio. All the fabric is from Joann's. I had to size down the one for my niece, I mostly took the measurements and divided in half but I had to tinker with a few of them. I had a dress that I used to help me get the proportions correct. The sash didn't quite make it all the way around to keep a front tie but that's ok.
I couldn't leave out the nephew, I didn't think he would appreciate wearing an apron. I whipped up this cute appliquéd onesie using some leftover fabric from the aprons.
It's challenge time over at Cut it Up! This session you need to create a thank you card or project!
I used the leaf is from Flower Shoppe. It's outlined with the cricut markers and cut at 2.5. I sewed a cross stitch accent down a strip of brown paper. The sentiment shapes are from Teresa Collin's Sophisticated cartridge.
