Welcome to this month’s Technique Blog Hop where we are focusing on FABRIC. If you are starting here just continue until you make your way back. If you have already started, you should be coming from Stephanie Chumbley.
I have to admit when Close to My Heart came out with these fabrics I really wasn’t sure what to do with them. It’s great that they coordinate with different papers but I have a feeling they will last me a very long time. For my layout I used the fabric to create the butterflies and flowers. The butterflies are roughly 2″ squares of fabric cut with pinking shears on the sides. To create the flowers I first cut a long strip (about 1/2″) of fabric. Then I twisted it so the pattern was mostly on the outside and from there I twisted it further into a circle. As I did the final twisting, I used 1″ glue dots to adhere it to my paper flower. The inside of the small flower is a strip of fabric tied in a loose knot with the ends cut off. At first, I planned to use knots with the ends but I didn’t like it so I used those (they look like little bows) in the upper corner of my layout. I used this sketch from Scrappy Sketches.
