Light Up Your Day - with Fabric!

Remarkable Holiday Madness Blog Tour - Day 3

When I first heard about the fabric that was added to our product line I was excited, and nervous.  I am a crafter.  I love stampin' but I also love sewing, quilting, needle work, you name it!  I have dabbled in almost all things craft. However, how could I use this new product line in my business without dragging my sewing machine to a hostess party? Well....I often carry a quilting square given to me as a thank you gift from Stampin' Up! employees at the warehouse (I'm not the only one who got one).  But today's tour shows one of my first fabric projects . . . and tomorrow you'll see my 'house' of fabric!


 I started with this little night light I bought a long while back in the discount section of a local store.  I had every intention of changing the cover but never could find the right look . . .

Well....when I saw the fun fabric from the Holiday Mini Catalog, Deck the Halls (page 16) I was sure I was going love the style (I love 'old world' stuff).  So here's what I did with it.




I use the pink cowboy fabric as my pattern and the adhesive, my favorite heavy duty guy - Stick Strip (IB&C page 197).  I put the tape on the edges of the fabric.  The Crochet ribbon (Victoria - IB&C page 190) & 1/8" Taffeta (page 191) were added afterward with mini glue dots.  It's been over a month and it's holding up without any problems!  I love it and I think it goes with my plans for a French Country makeover in my bathroom!

What do you think?

I hope you will continue the tour and stop back here tomorrow to see what's next!
