This little cat wanted to thank one of his dear friend who was always there for him when he needed it. So he decided to sew her a nice hat for the occasion. Even if he was a little distracted by the wool balls he finally managed to make a beautiful pink beany!
Welcome to our monthly hop blog called the Squirrels Gone Nutz. If you are new to it, each month we have to make a project with supplies we don’t use enough. There is a theme and/or a technique and type of supply. This month it’s “Thank you” and “Stitching”.
So welcome to the new hoppers and for my regular viewers, thank you for stopping by today!
I don’t do “proper” stitching but I am a big fan of stitched dies. For this month, I thought I would mix the two. I bought some basic stitched dies a couple of months ago so it was the perfect occasion to use them. And I managed to stay perfectly in the theme with this adorable stamp set from Clearly Besotted I never had the chance to use before.
So first, I die cut my stitched square peg board into my Craft Perfect white paper. I decided I wanted a simple heart shape on the back of my card. So I made a draft, took a needle and luckily found some thread (it was a long shot ) and sew my heart. Although I like the result and may integrate some stitching on futur projects I don’t think I found a new calling
After that, I stamped my Clearly Besotted images and colored them with my markers. I also stamped my sentiment on the peg board with my Altenew inkpad and glued my colored images on it. I used foam pad for the cute cat.
Finally, I matted and layered the peg board with some Kraft cardstock and a stitched bigger colored cardstock square.
Et voilà !
May the craft be with you !
