Scallop Square Toy

I have been playing with the new Scallop Square Bigz Die RRP $52.50 within the Summer Mini Catalogue and what fun I’ve been having. Along with having a class last night on making a Scallop Square bag (picture below) I have also created the Scallop Square Squeaky soft toy. I used black felt for the base material, then to accented each panel I used  red and green felt while creating different designs using the Big Shot Dies= Bigz Dies - Beautiful Butterflies RRP $52.50,Original Dies - Blossom Party RRP $40.95, Leaves #2 RRP $36.95 and Ovals RRP $36.95. Once all sides were completed I sewed them all except the last panel together, added the stuffing and squeaky unit then closed it up. Alternatively you could add a bell inside so the kids can shake it instead of squeezing it.
A big thanks goes out to Ann Wills for loaning me most of the dies for this creation!!

Scallop Square Bag

Dont forget about this Tuesday's bag making class ladies I will be showing you how to make a Scallop Square Bag using the Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die sold within the Summer Mini Catalogue RRP $52.50. I made one on Friday using upholstery fabric (because it was thicker in material and double sided  so can be reversed) it took an hour to make from the cutting to the last sewn stitch on the machine, very easy and looks great. 
I have a few spaces left so don't delay!!
