More felt goodies!

I admit, my attention has been drawn away from cards lately, as I have fun with all the stitching dies Erin Lincoln IMG_1709

is creating for Papertrey Ink. These are a pair of butterfly barrettes I made at the request of our priest for her niece Gigi. They were relatively quick to make, once I got the hang of it. You can find instruction videos on You Tube on how to put them together. I also used Erin’s dies to create the boutique display card, which gives a nice dimensional and easily customizable way to sell or give them. The yellow and orange felts are from Benzie, floss is by DMC, and all other materials and tools from Papertrey Ink. (Go to their blog, Capture the Moment to see more ideas)

Girly felt booties

Felt baby booties, girly-girl style!

My beloved Papertrey Ink has come out with some more awesome dies for crafting, this time with felt or fabric, primarily. Erin Lincoln designed the set of dies that can be used for little baby booties that would fit little ones up to 3-5 months old (depending on their size, obviously!) The basic dies produce the simple bootie, complete with the little tab at the back to help reinforce them as you pull them on. There is a set of detail dies that lets the user create the cutest embellishments for the booties, plus you can use some of Erin’s other stitching dies, too. A co-worker of mine asked me to create a pair for her soon-to-be born niece, whom the family is assuming will be a girly-girl like her mom and aunts. Jenny and her sister and mom fell in love with them on the spot! The cream-colored felt is from PTI, the floss is by DMC and I found a local source on Etsy for the rest of the felt, a designer called Benzie (www.benzie.com) that I ordered an array of colors from, looking forward to making coffee-cozies, barrettes and more with her stuff.
