Our Design Team continue to inspire us with their talent and creativity!
Today we haveHeather Leopard sharing some fabulous creations that she made using the cutting mat, Little Snips, i-rock Mini Iron and the i-top 2.0.
No doubt about it, Imaginisce has some of the BEST tools on the market and I love that they are always adding to their collection. Way before I was an obsessed scrapbooker I would dabble with sewing, usually making outfits for my then toddler girl. I kind of got away from it as she got older so when we were asked to create anything we wanted using Imaginisce tools, I immediately gravitated to my fabric stash.
Down here in Texas we drink a lot of sweet tea. My family loves the sweet tea from our Keurig machine. We make it using their Brew over Ice cups, which look fine but I wanted to dress mine up a little so I made this cup koozie.
I cut the fabric using the new cutting mat. Have you seen the cool design of it? I also used the snippit scissors but the rotary cutter would work great too. I made a pattern, which can be downloaded from my blog, and cut the fabric. I cut two strips of fabric from the pattern and a third using felt for the inside. I also cut strips to use for ruffles on the top and bottom.

Before I sewed it together, I covered a medium button daddy with coordinating fabric using my i-top 2.0. I hand stitched it to the fabric and then sewed the pattern and ruffles together, adding twine to the opposite end from the button.
Once it was all stitched together, I wrapped it around the cup, tying it around the button. My ice tea glass is not so boring anymore!
Bag Tags/Key Fobs
My original idea for this next project was to create a key fob for my keys but I just got back from a trip to London and realized I really needed a set of bag tags for my luggage. I’m sure you know all how hard it is to find your luggage when they all look alike. As I was creating mine it dawned on me that my girls could use new tags on their back packs so made them some as well.
To make these, I used the new cutting mat and snippits again. I simply cut different shapes from fabric and felt and cut out our initials. I stitched the initials to one side of the fabric before stitching it all together so that the outline of the initial would show on the back of the tag. I added the loop to the inside of the fabric and then stitched it all together.
Thanks for stopping by today.
