Make a Camper Pincushion (or two or three)



The happy camper die has arrived! You can make a whole trailer park. Until now, the Happy Camper has only been available as a kit. So many of you have asked for custom colors or details that couldn't be done in a kit. Sizzix asked if I would like to design a die based on my best selling kits and I new this was the answer. 


The die has pennant flags, awnings, curtains, hearts and wings that can be moved around to make the camper uniquely yours. There are a lot of pieces and this is where the die makes it so easy to cut all of them. You iron the paperbacked fusible webbing to the fabric before cutting. Then you peel the paper off and iron the pieces on.


I went through my scrap basket and used up all of those little pieces of fabric that I had been saving. This was the perfect project for them. 


I can't decide which one I like best. 





On my last visit to Sizzix headquarters, we shot this video. It shows all the steps to making the happy camper. Want to see a video of how it's made? Watch this.



The die is shipping from Sizzix if you can't find it at your local retailer. And this is my favorite Sizzix cutter just in case you need one.


I think I need to make a pink camper next! What color would you make?

Have a good day!
