I had this idea to try cutting fabric with framelits. I think I've heard rumors that it's possible, but I don't recall any specific blogger's post about it. So, I thought, what the heck, I will just try it for myself. Well, what do you know? They really DO cut fabric! Awesome. One caution... you should probably shim your Big Shot, as fabric is very thin compared to card stock. Or, make sure you have really sharp fabric scissors around to help loosen the cut fabric.
So, this is what I made:
Originally I only had a flat piece of fabric for the bottom of the skirt, cut with framelit. But it looked so... flat, as if it were paper. I was worried you wouldn't be able to see the difference between my fabric version vs. a paper version. So, I took another piece of fabric on the table, folded to make the skirt look fuller. That was the look I wanted. Now onto adhering. I took out the old needle and thread, then didn't really know what I should do about it. Haha. Pulled the thread back out. Decided to use fabric adhesive instead. Ok, this was the liquid kind that I bought at the store. But if I wasn't so lazy, and went to find my fabric adhesive roll, it would probably be better, without getting goo on my hands. Anyways, in the end, that's what held my fabric top and skirt down, fabric adhesive. I put it on the back of the ribbon, too, to make sure that stayed. I cut off the prongs of the brad, so it could lay a little flatter. Oh, lastly, the pearl strand was added, because, you know, every woman needs to have pearls. :)
My second project is a hand warmer. Made with, what else? Staying true to my obsession with using our Scalloped Square die to cut fabric. This was originally something I saw on Pinterest. You can do this with any size you want. But I love using our Scalloped Square die, because you just sew up all sides, leaving a hole, big enough to fill with your rice/lavender mixture, then sew up the rest of the way.
