I'll be using a Big Shot die cutter to complete my projects.
I decided to begin with the three quilting dies that I thought were staples of a good quilting die collection: the 2 1/2" strip cutter, the 2 1/2" square and the 2" finished HST. More about that later! Today I am sharing just a little extra. It's not going to count as a tutorial because I classify it as more of an "idea." It's the simplest little project but it makes me insanely happy.
I just love this die by Tim Holtz. It's a Bigz Die called Sewing Room. I bought a large piece of chipboard in the mat section of the craft store and the Big Shot cut through it so easily!
While I like the dress form and button shape, the thread spool got me to thinking. I am guessing that I am not the only one who has embroidery floss that quickly goes from nice and neat in the packaging to a tangled mess, right? I know that they sell little cards to wrap them on but I thought it would be so cute to wrap my floss on little chipboard spools!
