The first project I made was a 'Tuffet' style pincushion. I loosely followed an online tutorial and then adapted it to suit myself by making the 4" circular base out of several pieces of packaging cardboard to make up a good half inch thickness. I then layered a piece of 1" circular foam, wadding and a pouch filled with emery (I didn't have walnut shells). Lastly a piece of wadding was layered over the top of this 'cake' and the cover placed over it. The actual fabric was cut into 1.5" x 4.75" strips and then shaped into crayon type shapes and I used some 'pawn' chess pieces for my legs. If you watch the original video tutorial you will see how to make it all up.
The Sizzix fabrics worked wonderfully for this project and I love how it turned out. I also made a gift bag using the Tonic Studios die set, a gift box using the Cardmaking Magic die set and a journal cover for future projects.
The quirky flowers were also made and a dragonfly with the leftover petals.
I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with these fabrics and other products from CraftStash and I hope you have enjoyed following along and seeing what I've created.
