Makin’ It Cute ~ Blog Tour!

Welcome!

We have invited some friends to help us celebrate the release of our new product called “Makin’ it Cute”!

MakinItCute-Cover

It’s something I’ve been making for years and we decided to do something about it. We teamed up with Sew Emma and the Fat Quarter Shop to produce, sell and distribute Petal Pack. We showed the product for the first time at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh with our new “LOL” fabric group.

Each “Makin’ it Cute” Petal Pack contains templates and instructions for makin’ some cute fabric flowers. You can also make them out of paper, felt or wool … use your imagination!

The easy to follow instructions are on the inside cover . First … make your fabric sandwich. Then trace the templates.

I like to use pinking shears to cut out my flower centers.

It’s that simple and you can use these cute flowers to decorate EVERYTHING! I’ve made hundreds!
