Grandmother’s Fan

6 May

Here is another retired Sizzix Originals medium die Grandmothers Fan 38-0718. My guild friend Annette sent me a text and asked “do you have a Dresden Plate or Grandmothers Fan die”. Of course I do! At least 3 different ones in fact. Annette chose this retired die to pair up with a size able collection of “stupid fabric”. Don’t be alarmed…Annette describes these fabrics as the ones from the LQS that just don’t sell, don’t display well on the bolt and languish on the 60% off rack! These same fabrics in isolation cut with this small die are awesome and really do “play” fantastically together. Cut 6 fans at a time, 300+ ready to stitch, Annette is on her way to a masterpiece!!! I can’t wait to see what you cut 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!

Die Cut Appliqué Minion

20 Nov

  
Isn’t this little Minion Pincushion cute?  He is an example of me being derailed. Does that ever happen to you? Needless to say the project list is long. But sometimes you just have to stop and do something fun or silly. This Minion is my prototype 1. I am working out a method to create my Minions from my die cuts and of course felted wool. Special thanks to my friend Evie for her inspiration and her Farmers Wife block for display. Put Free Minion Pincushion in your search engine and patterns by others are sure to come up. Happy Stitching!

Die Cut Appliqué – The Bees Knees

26 Jul

Do you appliqué or is it the “A” word as I have heard some quilters call it?  Well, for me appliqué is the Bees knees! Specifically I love die cut appliqué using primarily the Sizzix steel rule dies and felted wool. Never a scrapbooker, I have always used the Sizzix dies in my quilting and fabric crafts. I encourage you to cut something out and create!
