Lucky End to the Year

At the beginning of December, I was lucky enough to win an Accuquilt Go!Baby cutter & 3 dies, in a giveaway over on Pings&Needles. (Go have a look at Sarah’s blog if you’ve not visited before – its fab!)  Well it arrived 2 days ago (the cutter that is) & I’ve been playing with it ever since!


(I really should tidy my workspace before taking photos – maybe a new years resolution?)

Look at what I’ve cut so far:


Some felt flowers using the funky flowers die, and grey shapes using the rag star & heart die.  Here is a close up of the fringing on the edge of the star:


I also cut some flowers from bright fabrics backed with bondaweb and then appliqued them to both sides of a plain white tote bag using free motion embroidery.



I then cut some 5” squares with the third cutter and used them to start making a cushion cover for my living room.


Phew, I have been busy over the last two days! 

So thank you to Sarah at Pings&Needles for finishing my year in a really lovely way.

Hope that you all have a very Happy New Year, and here’s hoping that 2012 will be filled with lots of fabric and crafting.
