Twitterpated Fabric Creations
Woo Hoo! I’m now on holidays for FOUR WHOLE WEEKS! (Apologies to my colleagues who might drop in to my blog). Now it’s not that I don’t like my day job, it’s more that I desperately needed a holiday and I’ve been looking forward to some extra craft time for the next couple of weeks before heading ‘home’ to visit my family during the school holidays.
I had such a relaxing day today and whipped up a few items using fabric. Yep…I’m back on the fabric train. I soooo love that Stampin’ Up! now have fabric. For me, it’s the best of both worlds and the new Twitterpated pack from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue is simply gorgeous. Colour co-ordinated flowers, stripes and dots are always a perfect combination.
For some time now, I haven’t wanted to sew and I’ve been mucking about making things that haven’t needed me to get out my machine. Today, however, was different. Maybe it’s because I now have time to relax and enjoy the process. This morning, I was writing an email to a fellow demonstrator via our Oz Stampin’ Up! Forum. She was asking for some help with sewing so I thought I’d send a few tips to help get her going. My last piece of advice to her was to ’take your time and enjoy what you are doing’. As I was wrote the email, I realised how much I missed it and inspired to finally open that little pack of Twitterpated Fabric that I purchased a few weeks ago. So…here is what I made.
It’s a sweet little business card holder for a great friend and I can’t wait to give it to her. This little creation was so easy and so cute, I decided to make one for myself as well.
