Did I read fabric on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog? I think i did and boy did I get excited. I have been playing with fabric for years-since I was 4 and used to make doll dresses. I love scraps as i can play and create. Here is a piece I have been working on for awhile. The flowers have been cut either from a Sizzixx Die or an Accu-Cut Die. The Accu-Cut die I actually put through my Cuttlebug and it cut the fabric very nicely. I have used embroidery thread to highlight parts of the flower and define it. One style of flower I have stuffed wadding into the centre and used a running stitch to pull it in and puff it out. I used an invisible pen -the colour comes out and then fades after so many days, to trace doodle lines from a Crafter's Workshop Stencil and then used stem stitch to embroider over it.
I wish I had more time to embroider as it is one of my passions.
This technique can also be used on paper or cardstock.
