Artisan Award Entry #4: Girl’s Apron and Give-Away Flower

Welcome to Day 4 of the Artisan Award Entries!  For this contest, you need to submit 10 projects (5 cards, 3 Scrapbook page and 2 3D items.)  Today’s one of my 3D item: a girl’s apron.  I used the Stampin’up Summer Smooches Designer Fabric (now retired) to make it.  This fabric came with three fabric designs and I used them all. I made my own pattern for the apron and I was really proud of myself!  I used the Bright Designer button and Real Red Stitched Grosgrain ribbon to add some embellishments!  I decided to make a little paper flower with the Summer Smooch Designer Series paper to put in the pocket! (That was a last minute idea!)

To make the flowers, I cut a circle of fabric and hand sew all around. Then you pull on your thread and gather the fabric in the center. Glue or sew a button on top.

Artisa Award Non-winning Entry Day 5: Girl’s hat

For one of the 3D item, I made a girl’s hat using Stampin’up fabric and ribbon.  I made the small roses myself with the pleated Satin ribbon and used the grosgrain ribbon as the leaves.  The big rose was made with the Candy Cane Christmas Designer fabric.
