It was my Aunt's birthday last Friday so I had to send her a card in her favourite colour - purple!
I was inspired by a wall scupture in a restaurant recently so took a photo of it. I thought something similar would make a lovely card front.

I used the big shot to cut out my letters, then ironed them on to the calico using the fabric adhesive. My sewing machine has a blanket stitch which I used around each letter. Then there is a 1" border (cut 1 1/2"), a 3" border (cut 3 1/2") then the binding (3" strip ironed in half). I only quilted around the calico frame with my machine but could have quilted more of course. In total it took about 4 hours to make. And I still have heaps of fabric left! Hmmm, what to make next?
