Inspiration Wednesday {with Lisa H.}

Hello and welcome!
I'm super excited about 
the project
I have to share today. 

It's Inspiration Wednesday 
and the first place I go
when I'm in need of
some inspiration
is Pinterest.

Ahhhhh, what did we do before Pinterest??

I spent a little time on Monday 
morning just scrolling through 
beautiful projects, yummy food, and all things holiday.

I saw these simple, yet classic ornaments. 

Next step, I went browsing
through my Unity stash. 

I chose THIS 
Unity Itty bitty. 

Here is what I made.

It really was quick
and simple. 

  1. Die cut two pieces of cream felt. You can use any shape. I went with a Postage edge die. 
  2. Stitch the two pieces together. You can use a machine or hand stitch.  Be sure to leave an opening at the top. 
  3. Cut a piece of musil or linen fabric that will fit the size of the felt you die cut from above. 
  4. Stamp your sentiment in permanent ink. I used Black Archival ink from Ranger. 
  5. Attach linen fabric to top of your felt pocket with double sided adhesive. I used Scor-tape. Be sure to cover the entire back side of you fabric. 
  6. Stuff your felt pocket with cotton balls or tissue, anything that will give it some "puff" will be fine.
  7. Add some twine to top of felt opening, with the ends tucked inside. 
  8. Stitch up opening. 
  9. Embellish with  button and a touch of glitter if you like. 

Find something that inspires you
and Create something today!

I think I'm going to make a few
more of these
to give my family
this holiday!

Have a beautiful Wednesday.

ADORABLE! So easy to make yet beautiful! Would make great place settings for holiday dinners or even BBQ's or great to have a few on hand for last minute gift giving!!! 4th of July bbq gifts, Valentine's day "cards" for the grandchildren to give out at school instead of the traditional paper cards! Oh my, the ideas are just racing around in my little pea brain now! Going to have to get the supplies out and get to work! Thanks for the inspiration!!
