I got inspired to sew this week from another demo. She had called and asked me if I had done any quilting with the Big Shot and fabric- I had to admit that I am not a sewer and I have never quilted. She was so excited about it- she wasn't a quilter either but decided to give it a try- and with the Big Shot it was so much fun. I have been looking at the beautiful fabric that Stampin' Up! now has and been thinkin about what I could make with it- I was having a hard time cutting it!
Well I found this card holder on the internet and knew I would use it. I have been thinking of a way to store my Christmas cards and this was perfect. It took me about 2 hours from start to finish and this included a refresher course on bobbins and threading machines! I am looking at making a pot holder that will be the same as the pocket on this, a pillow, a few ornaments and who knows what else. I have to tell you I was so proud of myself when I finished- don't look to close you'll see the wobbly lines!
The tree is made using the pendant die for the Big Shot- the fabric comes with instructions on how to make it- plus instructions for a few other items too!
