Hello again and welcome to the Samantha Walker blog hop! If you just left Julie's blog then you're on the right track, if not you can start the hop here on Samantha's blog. Just leave a comment on this and all the other blogs along the way, for your chance to win a prize package of patterned papers and stickers from Samantha
Walker's Cowboy Collection.
Okay, so I'm still enjoying playing with fabrics and thought Samantha's Enchanted Garden collection by Riley Blake, would be perfect for a Spring project. The pattern I used for the bunny had a more primitive feel but since Samantha's fabrics are more contemporary I wanted to keep the bunny that way too. So instead of torn edges on the bottom of the pants and dress I finished the hems with pleated and gingham ribbons.
To make the pinwheel I "mod podged" two fabrics together, so it became double sided. Once the fabric dried I became more like paper and I could cut and bend it to shape.
Thanks so much for visiting! Next up is the talented Nancy Doren, you can click the logo below to hop to her blog.
