Wow! I just hosted a swap with fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrators around the country, and I know have 50 (FIFTY!) samples of fabulous items made with fabric cut with dies from the Big Shot. They are truly amazing! If you are in the Los Angeles area and would like to see these works of art in person, let me know. They are truly incredible!
But even if you are not nearby, I have a fabric project for you today. This is another one from the Stampin’ Up website.
Supplies: Corduroy button, Sizzix Big Shot, Scallop Circle #2 Bigz die, Fabric, Needle and thread, Ponytail elastic
- Die cut 10 large scallop circles using Big Shot and Scallop Circles #2 Bigz die. Cut off eight of the scallops from each scallop circle. Gather together across the flat side about 1/4″ from edge, gathering all ten circles on the same double-thread. Tie off.
- Die cut 10 small scallop circles using Big Shot and Scallop Circles #2 Bigz die. Gather the circles across three of the scallops on the same double-thread. Tie off.
- To cover Corduroy button, die cut a small scallop circle, then cut off all scallops. Gather the fabric around the edge, place button in the middle, then gather up threads and tie off.
- Attach ponytail elastic to back, then sew through all layers of fabric (including fabric around button), so fabric layers are connected to elastic.
