You have probably seen these all over blog-dome, but I had not tried one. I rummaged through my closet, and found an old vest that I have not wore in like forever, it is probably like 20 years old. It was the perfect kind of material to use. Before I go out and buy material I wanted to give it a shot…a Big Shot!
It was pretty easy, and it turned out pretty nice, antiquey looking. I found an old button in a jar and sewed it on. That was probably the hardest part, the sewing, I had to use an old thimble to push the needle and thread through the material.
It was kinda hard to take a good picture, that captured the colors of the material. I stuck it on my black toque, and it shows up a bit better there, I think it will look adorable on my jean jacket. I definitely want to make some more.
I used the Flower Folds Bigz XL Die. I want to play around with some different material, and some of the other Dies.
I am so glad that Evan won the gold in Men's Figure skating, he totally deserved it. The one skater that dressed like Charlie Chaplin and then had a broken lace, I did not know if it was part of the routine at first, when he was walking kinda funny, but then when he headed over to the judges, and had the lace broke. He sure fixed it in a hurry and got back to his routine. I think the silver winner looked kinda like a sore loser on the podium.
Ok, not much chat from me tonight, I am headed to bed, and will see you tomorrow.
Have a great Friday and thanks for stopping in!

Love those Material flowers. How many layers do you use? Good job for your first time. I have to try this, just been procrastinating.
Diana Gibbs says
Thanks! I think there was like 6 or more layers of each size but I folded them to make them be thicker looking. I also added one piece of solid black in there too. The vest was lined with black.
That is adorable hunny bunny!!!!

Beautiful flower and I love the colors. I havent' tried yet, but I've got several tuts saves and a pattern to try to. If you're like me, you can't afford to buy the awesome creations (I do have one from Gypsy Brocante I got during an incredible sale she was having).
Yes, isn't it wonderful that an American won? He is one of my favorites.
