The latest SSPT Design Team Challenge was to use black, white and yellow on a project. I've been wanting to try making my own felt embellishments, so I thought I'd give it a try for this challenge.
Unfortunately, the cricut wouldn't cut the felt. But I wasn't willing to give up that easily. I used the cricut to cut the design I wanted out of vinyl, then stuck the vinyl to the felt and cut around it by hand. I thought it would look better as an applique so I used embroidery thread to sew around the edges and used Heat n Bond to attach it to the shirt.
For the shirt Breena is wearing. I used the skull from Indie Art with a little modification with the hearts from George in Design Studio. The flowers are from Accent Essentials. The one yellow flower I had leftover, I sewed to a ponytail holder.
I was going to use Baylinn as the model this time, but Breena wouldn't let go of the shirt until I agreed to put it on her. Then I had to bribe her to sit still with a cookie so I could take her picture. (Her sister wanted a cookie too, so that's why she's also in the picture lol...)
There is an awesome cricut contest going on at http://www.todaysmama.com/exclusives.php. I'm going to enter this project - so wish me luck!
