Small items of Loveliness and a Shadow Quilting Card Tutorial
Very quick to make - the longest part seemed to be filling the bobbins to add into the petals! I'm pleased with it and hope that my crafty friend will be happy with it when she receives it!
First of all transfer a simple design onto a small piece of fusible (my designs were approx. 2" square or 1 1/2" x 3".
Iron it (carefully!) onto a piece of craft felt.
Now choose a bit of organza - bright, subtle, the choice is yours. Try it out over your felt and background fabric. When you're happy with it, cut out a piece slightly larger than the background fabric.
When you are happy with your choice use a couple of pins to anchor it over the background fabric.
When you have finished, choose how to finish your card topper.
Mostly I choose to cut the organza and background to the size of the card, then turn back the edges of the organza and trim 1/4" from the background fabric.
My other idea was to trim the organza around the motif with a soldering iron.
Finally, grab your glue stick and stick the topper to the card.
A fun way to make a card for your sweetheart!
