Sweet Stitches Magnet board/Home Decor

Here is a Magnet board I made out of an
old Cabinet door-using the Sweet Stitches fabric.

I used 4 STAMPIN'UP! DIES and my BIG SHOT.

Scallop Squares Duo
Tasteful Trim
Circles # 2
Serif Essentials Alphabet

Since they cut through fabric and felt!!
Love that.

I also love how the button button stamp set matches the fabric.
So I made some mini button magnets
out of the

Button Button Stamp Set
and the Buttons #5 Sizzlits Dies
-with coordinating paper colors.

Here is a mini cupcake pincushion I made out of this fabric too!!
And a tutorial to follow...

I will be showing more projects I made out of our fabulous fabric
for this last Convention.

I found this cool old kitchen cabinet door at an antique shop and thought
it would be fun to use to make a mag board out of it to hang in a sewing area craft room ext...
It's all about thinking outside the box these days right?

This was one of the samples at this last Convention.
If you saw it.

1. I started with the old cabinet door and picked up 2, 12 by 12 magnet board
pieces to fit inside.

2. I randomly pieced together different chunks of the Sweet Stitches Fabric
and looked to see how it would look.

3. Then I sewed them all together with the basic 1/4 inch seam allowance.

4. Once that was all finished and pressed. I placed the applique pieces I wanted to
put on top to see how they would look.

5. I cut out a square of the stitching pattern and ironed on to fusible batting.

6. Then folded the edges over and pressed.

7-8-9. I then added a little piece of FELT from this fabric shop that matched
the Tangerine Tango color very well. I love their selection of felt!
I cut it using our Scallop Squares Duo Stampin Up die.
and pinned some pins into it.
( The felt scallop square I did not sew, I just pinned on).
For the zigzag detail:
I used the Tasteful Trim SU Die
A piece of felt again with iron on adhesive already ironed onto it and cut it out
at the same time so that I could just iron it onto the fabric.
After peeling off the paper backing.

10. I then took an oversize piece of med-heavy fusible batting, and put it over the inside lip of the cabinet
front. Tracing exactly along the line. Then cut along that line.

11-12. Then I just centered the main fabric piece I had quilted. Over the cut out batting.
And centered to my liking.

Glued it all together with trusty-ole super glue and viola!!
