I must tell you, that I have been checking out tons of sewing blogs, trolling for new ideas. And of course, it helped that this weekend I got a great deal on a few t-shirts (bargain prices!!) that I can play with without feeling guilty. I also got a new shipment from Stampin' Up, which included a new blossom die which is (no pun intended) to DIE FOR!!
So here is a sneak at my new die, yummers, no??
|Sneak a peek!!|
The new die has these beautiful flowers, oh my they definitely look wonderful and are a good size, none of these puny baby size blossoms here! Well, maybe a couple....
|So the shirts I used for this particular project were 40% off the lowest price.|
|Notice I got 2 shirts in 3XL (I am a XL, but wanted the extra fabric for what you'll see.|
|I then took the sleeves and cut as many flowers as I could out of them, both in the small and large.|
|I layered them (3 large petaled and one small for the big ones) and hand sewed them together, then pinned them onto the top using my wonderful dummy body.|
|This is how they looked once I sewed them onto the blouse.|
|I think it was so easy to just use my die cutter, the whole thing took me about 1 hour to make!|
Cheers and enjoy crafting,
