TEXTILE WEEK... (DAY 4 OF 5)

The highlight of this week is definitely THE BIG SHOT.  And today, I used the Flower Folds Bigz XL Die...  Here, I ran sheets of craft foam through the Big Shot...

From This 

...and made a lollipop bouquet.

Bouquet 

My creativity went wild... Next I made the RED FLOWER by ironing fabric onto both sides of fusible interfacing and cutting the shapes with the Big Shot.  It is secured in the middle with a Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon knot.  The FUNNY FACE FLOWER is made from craft foam with the eyes and smile punched from card stock.  It could be easily made for a child's birthday party favor or a craft at VBS in the summer!

Four flowers

But this is my very favorite, made with cotton fabric and quilt batting.  The edges of the pink fabric were easy to fray for a ragged look, but the green fabric was stiff, so I left it alone.  The Clear Button in the center is tied with a little piece of Hemp Twine to give it even more of a country look.

Favorite

I can think of about 100 things to do with these darling flowers.  Can you? 

Day 5 of 5 (tomorrow) will feature SCRAPBOOKING WITH TEXTILES!
