Applique Pirate and Ballerina Pillows


You might of caught a glimpse of these pillows on Instagram the other day when I was taking photos. These pillows were made from the Pirate/Ballerina die from Sizzix. I love to applique, and if you take a look around the blog you'll see a lot of applique projects. So when I design dies for my line with Sizzix, I do my best to take applique in to consideration.


If you iron paper backed fusible webbing on to the fabric before cutting, you just peel off the paper and iron the pieces in place. It's so easy.


Here is another option for dolls after you make a pirate or ballerina.

Want to watch a video on how to make the dolls?





Have a great day,
:) Jennifer

Did you know? Ice Cream Edition



We're back with another trivia question. Todays topic is ice cream. Remember this for your next get together, you'll amaze your friends.

Answer:
  • The tallest ice cream cone measures 3.08 m (10 ft 1.26 in) in height and was achieved by Hennig-Olsen Is AS and Trond L Wøien (both Norway) at Kristiansand, Norway, on 26 July 2015.
    The complete ice cream cone consisted of a wafer cone (95.85 kg), chocolate lining (60 kg), ice cream (1,080 litres) and jam (40 kg) and, after being measured in the factory freezer, was carried below a helicopter to be distributed to attendees at the Tall Ships Race event in Kristiansand Harbour.
