You start by making a quilt sandwich. You can spray baste them if you like but I found my fabric stuck to my batting just fine without it ;)
Then trace the templates onto your sandwich. I decided to trace them onto the back so that if I didn't cut just perfect it wouldn't show up ;)
Then stitch a line 1/4" in from your traced line.
And then cut on the line. I used my pinking shears to add a little fun on the edge.
And when I got to my heart, I decided to shake things up a bit. So I cut out my hearts first.
And then stitched a fun blanket stitch around the end closing up the ends. I love the added bit of texture it gives around the edges :)
Once you have them all stitched together, just stack them up and sew a button through the middle to keep all of the layers together. And your done!! How easy and fun is that!!
Now the only problem, my daughter can't decide what she wants to make cute in her room. She is thinking the mirror.
Or maybe her reading corner.
Or maybe with her princess dress-ups.
I think I need to make up a few more of these :) Which I am sure will make everyone happy as my daughters have fallen in love with these and want to make everything in the house cute!!
These templates are made in conjunction with It's Sew Emma from the Fat Quarter Shop.
