Die Cut Appliqué- Woven Baskets

#sizzix_quilting (no affiliation but I’d like to!) Sizzix has a number of dies for strip cutting. We used the the 1/2″ strip cutter to cut pre fused felted wool for weaving. The results are adorable.  Add some buttons for the handle and a few little leaves to embellish. Cut something out and create!
