Project Mondays 2-15-10

And Blog candy!

For this weeks project I wanted to do something a little different, I have been loving working with fabric, as I am a quilter too.. I love fabric, so anything to incorporate fabric into my stamping makes me happy!
To start this weeks Project I got out my Basket and Blooms XL die from Stampin' Up! and ran 2 pieces of felt ( I used off white) through at once. I knew I would want to make more than one, lol!

For this project I only needed the basket pieces. I put the others away for use on something else.

I folded a small piece of pink felt in half and placed it over the small butterfly on the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die from Stampin' Up! and ran it through the Big Shot.

I placed a butterfly on the basket where I wanted it and stitched it in place using lavender floss ( 2 strands) Then I used a pen to lightly draw my antennae.

I used 3 small off white pearls from the Pretties kit from Stampin' Up! and stitched them on for the body, then stitched the antennae.

I used a bright pink floss to stitch up the basket. I did on side at a time, then I stitched the bottom on.

as you can see from this photo I added a butterfly to both sides of this basket... I will only add one the any others that I make... I was having so much fun that I wanted it to be pretty from both sides!
and the Finished project, I am excited to make more of these for Easter!!
What do you think? do you like it? do you want it? Leave a comment and on Friday ( 2-19-10) I will draw one lucky person will win this basket!
