Whoooo likes Fabric?

Today I wanted to share a very special project with you. My friend Madeline came up with it and used DSP for it… I wanted to create a similar one. But the more I looked at it and saw just how munch punching was involved, I decided to go a different way.

I used Designer Fabric and BigShot dies.  And the result is this cutie:

The “Spice Cake” Designer Fabric was used here. For the ruffles I used the “Tasteful Trims”die and for “feathers” I used the “Island Floral” die.

The eyes, ears and beak are made from DSP, and of course, I did some sponging!

All I can say it was a LOT of die cutting and hot-gluing! But so well worth it. I do think that it’s easier with fabric and dies than DSP and punches. So I took the easy road…

What a nice gift! I had her on a plate with leaves, but forgot to take a picture before I gave her away…

Now I just have to make another one for myself Smile

  4. Tiffany - thanks for liking Madeline's project and my take on it well enough to feature it. The base is a simple white foam ball. I used an 5 inch one and cut some off the bottom to make it stand straight.
