SEW NICE!

Hope your having a good weekend.  It has finally cooled off around here so I certainly am!
I made a little sewing kit using a new set from ARTFUL INKABLES called SEW YOU.  Though I don't have much any time for it anymore, I used to make nearly all of my clothes so I really love this set. 
The case is an SVG file of a CD CASE that I made a bit smaller and cut with my cricut.  It has a little tab that tucks in to close the back.
I purchased an inexpensive sewing kit and made my own background for it with a little tab to slide the tiny scissor into.  I think this would make a nice bridal shower favor or a cute gift card holder for an avid seamstress.
The big flower behind the image was made using another SVG file called DOILIE SHAPES SET 1.  Digi paper was used (A beautiful life from The Digi Chick)so I printed a different pattern each for the front and the back, then cut 4 of my file (#6) at about 3 inches in diameter.

It was then crumpled, opened and crumpled several times till it was soft and well, very crumpled!


It was then unfolded and then folded as shown, pushing in the lower part of the circle. A little glue was added to the inside and then it was flattened just on the pointed edge.

The four were assembled as shown and attached to the sewing kit front.  The stamped image was cut out with a circle nestie and placed in the center of the circle with dimensionals.

The current THINK INK CHALLENGE is to use either real or faux sewing on your card or project.  Sew easy to do, sew why don't you give it a try!
