All of you know I LOVE receiving photos from customers. Don’t you think this idea would make excellent Christmas gifts! Barb sent me these photos. She was playing with new shapes using her Cuttlebug and Spellbinders die cuts. She has used hand dyed wool as a background. I will mention that I’ve used my Cuttlebug for felt and wool previously with very good results. I cut a number of my circles for my wool applique circle sampler with my Cuttlebug. Sometimes the wool is a bit thick so needs a little extra trimming but otherwise they turn out well. I absolutely adore the use of my hand dyed perle cotton for the bust and accent. The addition of a bead necklace – fabulous!
After cutting the silhouettes Barb started experimenting with other shapes. She used some patterned wool for these. I have all kinds of ideas for embellishing these! I can just imagine them on a garland hanging above the fireplace 🙂 Thank you Barb for sharing these – a few more ideas for CHRISTMAS GIFTS!
