Fun with Fabric!

So Cath at Moxie Fab World is at is again with her challenges and really got me inspired to work with the fabulous imported Japanese fabric available at Torendi.  So far I have used the "Stroll" fabric from the "Color by Number" Kit and the canvas "Mushroom" fabric. I hope to come up with a fun idea for all the fabrics before the challenge is over.  I have until June 7th, you should play along too.    


For my first project I made a card using the fabric as the background of the scene. All the stamps are from the adorable Critters in the 'Burbs by Lawn Fawn Stamps and are paper pieced with Cosmo Cricket  the Boyfriend paper. The sun is a sticker from the new E.A.D Designs Stickerz line, "Rainy Day"  I even used my sewing machine again!  I didn't really want the thread to be that noticeable so I matched it to the fabric as best I could.   


Here is a close up of the E.A.D Designs Sticker.  I used Copic markers to color it in.  You can also see the sewing better in this pic, so yes I did the crazy line on purpose!

Here is my next attempt at using fabric.  I made a little hair clip for my girls.  I traced the clip around the fabric where the little woodland critter was, cut that out,  sewed it to some felt, and then slipped in the hair clip.  Next I cut out mushrooms from the same fabric, covered them in sparkle Mod Podge, let them dry and then Mod Podged them to the clip. I plan on making more clips soon!


And here is my shy clip model! :)

I hope you are inspired to work with fabric now too!
