Just listed on Etsy

I used the ABC's and 123's pattern set to make this one.

Ragged Flower

Hi everyone!
I tried something new this week.  I really like it :)
This is a ragged flower made with flannel.  I put all the layers together and clipped them, then washed & dried them to get the ragged look.
This one is for sale at Etsy if you would like to own this one!
What can you use it for?
 Well here's a few things that I have thought of:
*add a pin to it and use it as a lapel pin
*add a hair clip on the back of it
*use it for your altered projects
*on the front of journals or smash books
*your sewing projects

I know there are so many more ideas to use these little flowers for :)

Here's a set I've been working on.  I've decided to try & start selling some of my piecings, so this is my first set to list at Etsy.

To make this set, I used the Rainbow Bears pattern set from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.

Design Team Friday

This week our challenge was to create a water themed project.
I found this paper & loved it!  I had also purchased an adorable crab outfit for Keegan, so I knew I had to make a page including this paper, Keegan with his crab outfit and use the Under the Sea pattern collection.
So, what's a girl in Illinois to do?  How could I make a beach themed page?  Well, here's what I came up with!  We took the grandkids to a great new sports store.  It's called Scheels & it has the most amazing salt water aquarium just inside the door!
So, here's my Friday project...
Be sure to check out the Little Scraps of Heaven fanpage to see all of the design team projects!

Keegan's Smash Book

It's time to share a few more pages Keegan's Smash book.

For these pages, I thought it would be fun to add some tags from his clothes.  I've added a few that I've been saving since he was born.  I don't know why I was saving them but I knew I would use them for something, lol!
This one is the last of the tags pages.  For this page I used the onesie pattern from the "Be My Baby Accessories" pattern set.
For the right page, I used the "Tooth Fairy Boy" pattern for this page.  This is one of my favorite page in his book!
Here's the other side of that page
That's it for today.  I'll be sharing more pages later :)

Monday Project

For my Little Scraps of Heaven design team project today I experimented with putting a paper piecing on shirts.

First I applied Wonder Under to my fabric.  When you cut your fabric for this project, you don't want to cut it really small.  Give plenty of room for it to stick to your mat while cutting.  I usually cut my paper just big enough for the what I'm cutting but you don't want to do that with the fabric.
Also, don't choose a pattern with a lot of small details, especially if you are using a Cricut because you just won't get a good cut.  I don't know if some of the other machines would work better, wish I had one to try, lol!
Iron Wonder Under to the wrong side of all of your pieces of material.

Next place them all on your cutting mat and cut.
Now it's time to start ironing them onto the fabric.  I wanted something between the layers of the shirt so I grabbed a thick changing pad.  It was right there and handy.
Now start ironing them on starting with the bottom layer

Now, you should probably finish it off with a zig-zag stitch.  I didn't because I hate sewing on knit shirts.  If I ever do this again, then I would finish them for sure but for this experiment, I didn't.
I think the patterns would look adorable on a quilt!  I also think they would be cute on a tote bag, really the possibilities are endless!
Now for the finished project!  I had to wait to share this project until my little model was at Grandma's house and could show off her new shirt!

For these projects I used the Boys and Their Toys collection & the Sock Monkey pattern.
