The 12 Crafts of Christmas - Day 5
On the fifth Day of the 12 Crafts of Christmas, I have Die Cut flowers from Faux Suede and made all kinds of accessories! This is a stash buster type of project. You only need a few things, which you may already have, to make fabulous accessories for all the fashionistas on your list! I decorated a hair clip, an existing chain necklace and a set of magnets to create a pin.
I used the Sizzix Die Cut Machine to cut out different shapes and sizes of flowers from faux suede. By the way, the Sizzix Dies cut many types of fabrics including fleece! We have one die with three different flowers that can be layered like we did. The adhesive to layer the flowers together is E-6000. I also used it to glue the flowers to the hair clip and the magnet for the pin. Another tip, if you use magnets instead of pins, you will avoid holes in your garments, and you can wear the pin more places, like a suede coat.
I already owned the necklace I decorated with the suede flowers. I am a huge fan of Anthropologie's style. This necklace has a hard and soft component that I have admired in their jewelry styles. I glued the leaves on the back of the largest flower first. I let it set, and sewed the flower on to my necklace. then I glued the rest of the layers over the stitches.
