Wool Appliqué Spring Fever brings Spring Stitching Butterfly and Blooms

29 Apr

Hand dyed felted wool is such a beautiful medium to work with and there is nothing better for butterflies and blooms.   

For these projects I used Sizzix dies and one Quilling die to cut the 1/8″ vine. 

Cut something out and create!

Sizzix Dies for cutting Letters and Numbers

Sizzix has a number Alphabet and Number dies of all types. Since we are talking fabric here my answer will always be stick to the Sizzix Steel Rule lines of dies marketed as Originals or Bigz as they provide the best frustration free die cutting possible. With your Sizzix BigShot/vintage/BigKick/Vagabond/BigShotPlus the Alphabet and Number dies currently available through Sizzix are: *Block Talk, *Word Play, Fresh Blossoms and Vintage Market *note some of these have the font all on one XL die. Most of the above cut letters 1-2″. For larger letters measuring 2 3/8″ there is a Stephanie Ackerman four die set. Don’t overlook the retired Originals dies (measuring between 5/8″ to 1 1/4″ – FunSerif and Lollipop. And…there are even retired Originals AlphaBars in several styles. Google Sizzix Alphabet and begin your hunt for the style you are after! I look forward to seeing what you cutout and create!

PS for the Sizzix BigShot Pro users you have even more options when you add in full height dies from Ellison, and Accucut-Craft/Studio.
