Fabric Gift Book Tutorial

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I wanted to whip up a simple little project that would make anyone happy to receive it and that any sewing beginner could make.

Here is what I came up with…
I’m calling it a fabric gift book. I’m not really that great at coming up catchy names for my projects. Can you tell? ::sigh::
But you get it right? It’s such a fun little project to work on and you can totally make it your own! I kept mine rather simple for the purposes of the video tutorial but you can embellish this thing all you want.  The sky is the limit really… I can see these be being made with stuff like puffy paint, fabric paint, fabric markers, buttons, flowers, paper craft embellishments, embroidery… and even patchwork for the outside cover! That would so awesome!
I used my Slice digital cutter to create my fabric appliques and it was a breeze!  I used the Applique Basics design card that comes with the starter kit and this super cute Je T’adore design card.

My friends over at Slice are giving me the opportunity this week to giveaway a Slice Starter Kit which includes everything you need (except fabric) to get started on your die cutting applique journey.  If you’ve never heard of Slice, click HERE to watch the video product review I did on it a few months ago. It really is a handy little tool and I love that it is as versatile crafter as I am.  The cutter works on fabric, felt, paper, vinyl and more!
GIVEAWAY DETAILS: Are included in the video tutorial.  Click HERE to watch the video and learn how you can enter to win your own Slice digital cutter. Giveaway ends on Sunday, Feb. 10th, 2013 at 11:59PM EST.

    The little gift book is just adorable. It could be used for birthdays or Christmas for those that you just don’t know what to give as a gift. It could be used for all sorts of things by the giftee later. I love your blog.

    The Slice would be such a useful tool for so many crafting projects but I would probably use it most in quilting.

    I would love to win The Slice. Recently widowed, I have an 18 year old son and 24 year old married daughter and lots of free time on my hands for crafting, sewing, quilting, etc. My daughter just found out that she is expecting my first grandchild so I could really put this wonderful tool to good use! 🙂

    Hi friends how are you hope you all fine I am share with you some tips This is the time to set expectations with your child. It’s important to do this well before the first kid enters your home, looking for a good time and a loot bag to boot. Your discussion about the upcoming party should include agreement on the “who, what, where, when and why” of the event. Some questions to consider may include: Who is going to be attending? Will you be inviting your child’s whole class or just a select few? Where will the party occur? Will it be at home or at another location (family or friend’s home, a restaurant or a child-friendly locale such as Chuck E. Cheese)? By laying the foundation and answering these important questions, you will avoid any misunderstanding, tantrums or tears later on.
    get well gifts for men
