When I received my shipment of dies from Top Dog Dies, I was so excited to get started playing.
I immediately got to work with some sketches for project ideas.
And as soon as I saw this die set,
|Top Dog Dies: Sew Much Fun die set TC019|
I knew I wanted to make a little canvas for my friend's new sewing room in her newly renovated 1800's home.
I prepared the background with some gesso and used bubble wrap to "stamp" some pink dots.
Then I die cut the shapes using mostly papers from American Crafts' Dear Lizzy line.
I am amazed at how detailed the Top Dog Dies cut.
Then came the fun part of arranging the pieces to fit.
Some bits of floss and baker's twine, some ribbon, and a few brads to embellish it all.
I wrapped the canvas edge in washi tape, and dressed up the back with more washi and a piece of patterned paper.
A cute little canvas to adorn her sewing room wall!
Thanks for visiting! I'll be back tomorrow with a super easy way to use dies for your embroidery projects.
ps. This little project is currently featured on the home page of the Top Dog Dies website!
