Artisan Award Project #10 Big Shot Pillow

Hop Project # 10 Big Shot/ Pillow

FOR BLOG CANDY details!!!!

I knew for one of my 3 D projects I wanted to make something with
material using my favorite thing ever...the Big Shot!
I headed off to one of my very fave stops
Material Girls
(Nadine the owner and all the gals over there I love!;))

Right as I walked in I saw this fabric
And the fabric colors coordinated perfectly
with crushed curry,real red, choc chip & old olive. Seriously??
I knew I wanted to throw in a random color so I threw in Jean
and used Not quiet Navy too!
I washed the 2 blue materials after cutting to make those shabby and frayed up!
and left all the other colors clean and simple.

This was definitely my favorite project and was hard to part with.:(
I will have to make another one.
I think this time it might be fun just doing a small pillow using just these small scallop circle flowers
like 3 rows of 3 with buttons-I feel another project coming on!

I LOVE this stamp set!
I am a sucker for Vintage mixed with Shab and so I knew I had to have this set.
And of coarse I love tags...
It's all about the presentation right?
So I thought it might be cute to make a matching "tag" to give this as a gift.

"sew glad we're friends"

Tell me whatcha think?

I will be drawing one lucky winner for the blog candy
and announcing that first thing Monday!
Have a fabulous weekend ;)
and thanks to (all) of you for the sweet comments-you made my day (each day;)!!!
Each and every one...So nice!
