It's here!!! It's here!!! Piccadilly Lane Fabric is in the house!!!
And that means it's in a store near you, too! To celebrate, I've designed a nifty carry-all bag which will be available soon as a pattern and the first 25 people who purchase it will be eligible to win a selection of fat quarters from Piccadilly Lane! THAT MEANS YOUR CHANGES OF WINNING ARE 1 IN 25!!!
I'm putting the finishing touches on the pattern right now ( by the way, it's a download pattern right from your computer ) and it'll be available next week! Come back and check it out, along with some other inspirational sewing ideas using my new new fabrics!
Also, check out the summer party going on over at the Henry Glass Blog! http://henryglassfabrics.blogspot.com/
We live in Georgia which means we are on the migratory path of many bird species. Can this explain the scene from our afternoon walk in our favorite field across the road? You tell me…
This guy was embellished with my Sizzix Beauty Bloom die made into layered flowers then stitched and gathered to create dimension.
When I designed this die, I wanted to give people a very, very versatile flower so I included a single petal, two smaller flower centers and the base piece which is three petals. You can use this die with paper/cardstock or with fabric.
Tip: when cutting fabric with your Sizzix BigShot or other machine, layer the fabric in between two pieces of copier paper for a really clean cut. I found that I can cut four layers of cotton fabric this way. For the flowers I used here, I used my Couleur Vie fabric collection by Henry Glass. The beaks were made from felt by National Non-wovens.
