Stampin’ Up! Fabric Projects

  Stampin' Up! Fabric Projects
This is a combined "gramma brag" and Stampin' Up! fabric projects post.  I have warned you!  My very creative, resourceful and super-talented daughter Tiffany is a SAHM with Jonah who turns 1 next month and Olivia who just turned 2.  Life is never dull in her household!  Jonah and Livy are both very active (and very cute!) children.  Tiffany says she can't seem to beg, borrow or steal a quiet child!  LOL.  Alas, mine were the same, noisy and active:)  I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.  Anyway, Tiffany still finds time…actually MAKES time to fulfill her creativity.  With two very young children, there is NO spare time, but I find that I have no spare time either, and I'm an empty nester.  We just have to MAKE time for what we really want to do.  We have to carve it out of our weeks.  And Tiffany finds that making something fun is very rewarding and feeds her soul in a unique way.  

So by doing something she really loves, crafting, she ends up being very fulfilled and makes wonderful things for her family, friends, and home that would cost lots of money (and not be as much fun!) that she does not have at present.  Tiffany loves the quality of Stampin' Up! products for her paper crafting projects but also for her many fabric projects.  This little dress for Livy is a great example. Stampin' Up! Fabric Projects

Tiffany used the Stampin' Up! Flirtatious fabric–all the Stampin' Up! fabrics come in sets of 3 large fat quarters.  The fabric sets are already matched for you, so you don't have to spend countless hours in the fabric store deciding which print goes with which other print.  Nice!  She made a patchwork ruffle by cutting 4" squares of fabric, joining them together, hemming one long end, and then gathering them into a ruffle.  She then used the 3" Circle Big Shot Die to create circles for the little yo-yo embellishments.  I love how you can take 8 layers of our Stampin' Up! fabric, lay it on the die, run it through the Big Shot and, Voila!, you have 8 perfect circles!  Of course, Tiffany's Stampin' Up! fabric project did not end with the Flirtatious Fabric.  Check out the Wisteria Wonder 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon she sewed all around the bodice, leaving a little tie in the back to make this dress a bit more girly and to bring out that gorgeous lavender even more.  The Subtles Designer Buttons, filling the yo-yo's, bring the Stampin' Up! color coordination all the way through.  

 Livy's dress was founStampin' Up! Flirtatious Fabricd in the Lands' End Clearance section.  Lands' End has fantastic quality, and we have shopped them for years–mostly in the sale and clearance section.  I dressed Tiffany in Lands' End as a young girl, and she is carrying on the tradition with her kids!  She transformed a plain white tunic into a darling designer dress on a shoestring budget.  A dress with this type of custom embellishment would cost big bucks in a boutique.   Livy wore this to church yesterday, and I'll get another photo of the cute little yo-yo barrette Tiffany made for her to finish the outfit with even more Flirtatious fabric pizzazz:)  In the photo above, she has an equally cute barrette made by simply using hot glue to attach a Stampin' Up! button.  


Stampin' Up! is known for their fantastic product coordination which allows our projects to have a really cohesive, pulled-together look.  I enjoy this almost daily in my papercrafting adventures.   But it holds true for Stampin' Up! fabric projects as well.  Check out the full array of Stampin' Up! fabrics in my online store, and stay tuned for more Stampin' Up! fabric projects posts here on my blog as Tiffany is sewing up a storm!
