Work the Stash Wednesday! Fabric & Garland
I had so much fun with my last Work the Stash Wednesday that I decided to do it again! This time I worked on a Santa page & am submiting it to a new challenge blog I found ABC DT Challenge. So, we all have stashes, what's the big deal? My goal was to use items older than a year, for which I did not have a scrap booking use and include sewing so I could enter the challenge. From my stash I pulled the red felt in the flower, the pink organza in the scallops (inside the circle) and the red star garland.
How did I make the scallops? Well I got out my Sizzix Circle dies and cut up a bunch of circles. I folded them in half and basted a stitch along the raw edge about 1/4" away from the edge.
I pulled the stitch to gather the thread, so that it was about an inch long and tied a knot.
I then glued them to my circle with my hot glue gun.
The felt flower was made with my Heartfelt Creations Dies and Stamps. I cut the felt with the die. Stamped the felt with some black Staz On, covered the stamped lines with liquid glass and sprinkled it with Martha Stewart red glitter. I then beaded the center.
