Sweet Life Raccoon-TOW

Hi there Therm O Web fans this is Jenifer here with you to share my Project using Pat Sloan's new "Sweet Life" fabric line.  A friend of mine recently had a sweet baby girl and I am in the process of making her a set of these sweet little stuffed animals.  I am using Simplicity 1549 pattern and have sewn up a few sets of these for gifts. When I first saw the grey I just couldn't get the little Raccoon out of my head, so instead of fighting it I just went with it.  I am so glad that I did!!  I just love this little guy.
I used some HeatnBond lite for the ears and the eyes and a piece of the Therm O Web Heat n’ Bond® Fusible Fleece for the sweet face.

Add some sweet ribbons around the neck and you have a fun one of a kind stuffed animal for a sweet little one.  This is a fairly simple pattern and is a quick project for anyone starting out.
I hope you have enjoyed my project, make sure you come back often to see more from this talented team.

Flower Mini-DCWV/Tombow hop

Hi and Welcome to the Gold and Cork Blog Hop with Tombow USA and DCWV! We have 2 days full with gorgeous projects using GOLD and CORK! You probably came here from Beth Watson but if you happened to stumble across my blog go to the Tombow USA Blog (on Friday) DCWV Blog (On Saturday) to start!

Welcome to my blog :)  for my project I wanted to make a little flower album that I can fill with pictures and dried flowers.  I love that I can add more pages when needed.  On the cover I used a DCWV Stencil, embossing paste and Wow embossing powders to make the cover really stand out.

I won't show all of the pages so far but just a couple of my favorite.  I used some of the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to tack down the lace and a pressed flower on a piece of the cork.  I love the delicate lace and the contrast of the cork.

I used some of the NEW Tombow Adhesive Dots to adhere my pictures.  The gilded stack is one of my favorites and I can't wait to use it in more projects.

Here are some more pressed flowers.

I have a couple pages ready to be filled when just the right flower picture or pressed flower comes along.

Denim Kindle case-ThermOWeb

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to share my denim project, using the most awesome denim I have ever used.  The denim comes pre-washed and ready to use and it is so soft with many colors to choose from.
For my project I used the Metal Grey denim and the Tech Pocket and Portfolio.  My boys needed a new "manly" kindle case and this denim was perfect.
This is the finished portfolio in all of its glory.

I found some fabric with some flames and using some Ultra HeatNBond on one side I cut out the flames and adhered them to the denim.  I sewed around the inside of the flames.  To give the flames more pizzazz I went over it with the Icraft deco foil transfer adhesive and added some of the Red Deco Foil.

Here is the inside of the portfolio.  There is an inside pocket to add notes.

Stuffed Bunny-Love My Fabrics

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to share my fun project with you.  A friend of my just had a beautiful baby girl and I will be making her some fun cuddly stuffed animals.  The first one to be completed is this bunny (Simplicity 1549) using the First Love pack.

This collection has soft blue polka dots, a beautiful solid blue and this gorgeous floral.  I did a bunch of hand stitching for the face and around the ears.

I just had to add a little bit of delicate trim around the neck and for the back I sewed on this fun piece of ribbon that says "handmade with love", to give it just the perfect touch.
