Embellishments



 Hey Hey,  I have been so busy lately behind the scenes at Jennifer Jangles. It's nice to take a break and do a little blog post. I bought a an old Sixxix cutting machine on Ebay a few weeks a long with some dies. I have been wanting to try one out to see if it was faster or better than just using scissors. I am still undecided on that one. It's fun to use and in just a bit I had a bunch of shapes to stack ad layer. I just wish they looked like they were cut by hand, you know a little wonky.


Pretty sure wonky wasn't a term I learned in art school. But anyway, after cutting out all of those shapes it was so much fun to spend and evening sewing the stacks together. 


And now I have a basket full of embellishments. I am calling them my emergency embellishments, because they are ready to go when I need them.


Have a great day,

  3. I like your fabric and colour combinations. One thing you could do to make them a bit wonky is to off set them when you stitch them together rather than right in the centre, another idea would be to time the occasional petal to make it smaller or skinner.

    Have fun with them whatever you choose to do.

  4. oh so cute, but I told my granddaughter I would not be buying her a sizzle machine, she will still have to cut them by hand, yours are so pretty and she has made some before, now she wants her own emergency stash........

    1. That's great Rosie, it was a lot of fun making them especially with no purpose for them. Hope you granddaughter has fun!

  5. They look great and Sandi has a couple of great ideas to "wonkify" them!
