Batman returns!!

I made this cape for my nephew for his birthday. I had to get Markus to model it before I wrapped it up! Of course I have already started on a second one for him, and will likely make a third for my other nephew, the boys LOVE dressing up! I am quite pleased with how it turned out....I used a Quick Sew pattern (though there was nothing quick about it!) I spent a few late nights after getting home from work, but managed to figure it out! It is hard to see in the picture, but there are little ears at the top of the hood...I lined them with interfacing to make them stick up.... I cut out the eyes and then satin stitched around the openings. The whole thing is fully lined (that was the tricky part!) but worth it!

FAncy Box

Of course Carrie G, had to have the fanciest project!! This is a little box/notecard holder. We used the big shot to cut out the scallop squares and the stamp set "because I care", one of my new favorites. Click the picture for a close up.....
I'm not sure what this set is even called...I like the way we popped the bird up and of course the mini library clip is a fun accent.

Wild Wasabi is back.....

I love this color, and am so happy it is back with SU's "color renovation". I attended a shoe-box swap a couple of weeks ago, everyone designs a card and brings the supplies for everyone to make their own.
