I am really excited to share with you a project I have been working on for Minerva Crafts who approached me to ask if I would like to design and create something with products from their store so of course I said yes! :-)
It was so difficult to choose but in the end I decided to choose some of their felt and assorted products to make a home decor project. I used their craft felt, some dies from docrafts, some beads, ribbon and hot fix gems. I cut my butterflies out of polka dot and plain black and white felt with my grand calibur, then decorated each side one by one but in matching ways. It is double sided so you can hang it from a ceiling. I sewed on the body which I made with beads, using three layers of different sized butterflies in felt. I then sewed decorative stitches with white embroidery thread onto the black polka dot butterflies. Next I hot fixed clear gems on the butterflies. Following this I added the ribbon. I folded the ribbon in half when cutting it to give a pretty end and fixed it from fraying with clear nail varnish. I arranged my butterflies and glued them to the ribbon first on one side, I then turned them round and glued the matching butterflies to the reverse of the decoration.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
