Last week on the Silhouette America blog I shared a detailed, step by step tutorial on how you can design and paint your own fabric for quilting! This project is perfect for when you need that very specific fabric and just can’t find it anywhere.
Last week I shared an adorable dress on the Silhouette blog that I made CT. I used their free shape of the day as part of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway.
It was a cute tree that had a slight Scandinavian look to it. I can only picture it in white for some reason, but I bet it could be used in many ways. I painted a border of them on the bottom of a dress I made using their stencil vinyl.
I am so in love with this dress and I want to make so many more! The pattern has 3 options for sleeves, 2 options for the skirt (pleated or gathered), 3 neckline options AND an optional pocket! Plus you can make it as a dress OR a top. Seriously, SO MANY OPTIONS. Plus it went together in just two hours on my first try and the instructions were so easy. It fit her really well too! I can see CT’s closest packed full of these within a year, you guys will be so sick of seeing them, maybe…Pin It
Last week on the Silhouette America blog I shared a few personalized ceramic ornaments I made. I used their Gold Vinyl and $1 ceramic ornaments I found at AC Moore!
They are PERFECT gift toppers or small gifts for when you just have way too many family members! They are also great for kids with unique names, so they can have their own personalized ornaments every year.
You can see more photos and a full description here.
So if you’re looking for a quick gift or decoration, then go check out the post,! (Theres way more photos too!)Pin It
I know there isn’t much time left to make the above project for this years Halloween, BUT you can alter it slightly for Thanksgiving, or make it winter themed! If you’d like to see more photo’s, along with instructions then you should check out my blog post over on Silhouette America’s blog!
I’ve been missing from this here blog. Between family obligations, deadlines and a cold turned pneumonia I hardly had free time. The free time I do have goes towards teaching myself Illustrator, how to use a Wacom tablet and anything else to better my creative side. I’m hoping to be back to a normal schedule soon. I have so many ideas, I just want to be able to execute them the best way I can.
About a week or so ago I blogged about this appliqued coaster set I made over on the Silhouette America blog. They were super easy to make and went together perfectly.
The pink fabric I used is Kona Cotton Bright Pink. Which really is BRIGHT pink. It kind of made it difficult to photograph and then even more difficult to edit the photos because it never wanted to stay the same color pink. Oh and the background fabric is also by Robert Kaufman, it’s their Yarn Dyed Essex Linen and Cotton blend in Black. It might just be my absolute favorite new fabric. Actually I just love all of Robert Kaufmans basics, but we’ll talk about that in detail at another time.
I took so many photos! I just couldn’t get enough of these things. If you want to make a set too you can read the quick instructions over on Silhouette’s blog.Pin It
