Hey crafty friends! Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Spring Plush Blog Hop! Woooooot Wooooooot! We are going to have big fun today with all these new dies and loads of inspiring projects from everyone. I'm the second stop today - right after the Simon Says Stamp blog. The full blog hop blogger list is at the bottom of my post. In true Simon fashion, there is a goody bag prize to be given away on every blog! Be sure to comment on all of them to increase your chances of winning some goodies. The names will be drawn on Monday, March 7th, so you have the weekend to hop away. Did you see my post from yesterday? There are three other projects! And...I'm sharing MORE today! I told you I couldn't stop making felties! The new release is full of wonderful Plush/Shape dies that can be used with Felt, Fabric, Paper, Fun Foam, or whatever else your imagination can come up with. I am really crazy about the felt so that's what I've used for my projects. Enjoy the hop and have a wonderful day and weekend! Thank you, as always, for coming by today! At the bottom of my post are the links to the products and the blog hop list.
I found this Happy Sunshine Die completely irresistible!!! He is soooooo cheerful! I love the little cheeks and his beautiful sun rays.... I paired him with the Little Cloud Die because I thought they looked cute together!! Hee hee. I'm thinking this would make the start of an adorable mobile for a nursery.... Too sweet.
For the yellow portion, I cut two pieces of felt because I wanted it to look a little thicker. I stitched the two yellow layers onto the top orange layer before stitching the two orange layers together. His pink cheeks and eyes are glued on with Fabric Glue. I used enamel dots for the eyes because...well, just because!
I added some cheeks to the little cloud also. I attached the raindrops with embroidery thread and glued them together with Fabric Glue.
In my post yesterday I talked about how much I love to wear denim jackets and pins.... So this next item is another felt pin. I used the bottom of the Springtime Basket die to create a flower pot and then filled it to the brim with felt flowers of all kinds and colors! The little roses are a die that you roll and then glue together to make it 3D.
After I stitched the flower pot part together I die cut a paper circle and slipped it inside. That is what my flowers are glued onto so they can be higher than the pot. I then glued a pin back onto the paper circle. I used watercolor paper to make it nice and sturdy.
Thank you so much for hopping by today!
Have a beautiful, creative day! XOXO
