Time to share my very last guest designer post as a pink flamingo over at Karel's blog. I wanted to keep with Karel's theme for this month which was flowers. I found these adorable little canning jars at Meijers a few weeks back and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with one (or two...maybe three) of them! I made a little pin cushion out of it for some of the stick pin embellishments I've been working on.
It was a really simple and quick project. I just cut some quilt batting pieces and then a large circle of fabric for the top. I used my ATG to put adhesive on the back of my crinkle ribbon for around the jar lid.
I found a lot of great beads that I wanted to try out and experiment making some stick pins with. I decided to try these ones out first since the beads have little flowers on them as well!
Supplies: 4 oz canning jar, My Craft Spot crinkle ribbon, fabric from Hobby Lobby, felt flower by Pebbles Inc., Pins and beads from Joanns (sorry, didn't keep the name of the brand before I removed them from the package).
I want to thank Karel for inviting me and giving me a shot to be a part of my first ever design team. I also appreciate her asking me to stay on, but with summer vacation from the boys school fast approaching I didn't want to make a commitment to something like that. We love our summer vacation and cherish the time and my crafting time becomes hit and miss. I didn't want to have any deadlines or obligations to uphold.
I get to go shopping with Jamie again!! We had so much fun last week, but not enough time. I have lived down here for 16 years and that girl had me places I've never been before!!! I still need to share pictures with you of all the goodies I got on that trip. Maybe I'll save them and add pics of whatever new stuff I get! :)
