Thank You

This month at Path of Positivity, we are sponsored by Pattie's Creations and Scribbles Designs.  The optional twist for the challenge is Try Something New.  My something new is a technique that I have wanted to try for quite a while.



I have used an image from Pattie's Creations called Antique Sewing Machine.  The sentiment is from Scribbles Designs.


When I first learned to sew at school we made pincushions using a central hexagon with contrasting hexagons surrounding it.  The we backed it and filled with some filling.  I've always wanted to try to see if I could get that to translate onto a card.  A while back I bought some hexagon dies so I try it - and still hadn't.  This gave me the impetus to actually see if I could get it to work on a card using self-adhesive fabric.  It was a little bit of a challenge as the fabric struggled to hold it's shape.  I ended up backing the fabric with cardstock before I cut it out so it held better.

The dies used are from Nellie's.  I faux stitched around each hexagon using a pigment liner pen.  The fabric is a self-adhesive fabric from a dollar store.
