March Blog Hop - Lori Whitlock Design Team

Welcome to the Lori Whitlock's design team blog hop for March!  

Here is the order of the hop

Natalie Graham  **** you are here****

For today's project I took the regular svg file and used it for little out of the box thinking.  It's a little girls headband with a shamrock center. 

You can use it to cut fabric, which isn't to unusual, but to use a border to create a shamrock, well, sometimes you need to stretch your mind a tad.  I used the file from Lori's store here. These are the same borders I used for my flower pots in this project here.

Here is how I made it...

I added some fabric stabilizer on the back to make it stiffer and easier to cut.

I cut two 12 inch borders from fabric.

Cut them into two bump pieces.

Then hand sewed three together to make the shamrock.

Then when it was all sewn together, I glued it, along with two flowers, some lace, ribbon and rhinestone on some felt, and attached it to a metal headband.  Perfect for St. Patrick's day.

My daughter was thrilled and has been wearing it all day.  I am sure we will get some good use out of it between now and St Patrick's day for sure.  

Now for some more fun stuff.... Lori has some fantastic freebies going today on each stop of the hop.... some fantastic Photo Prompt Tags.  My tag to give away is this darling Photo Prompt Growing.  I used it on a Project life card below.

You can download it for free today only. (sorry this has expired)  Make sure to stop at all the design team gals and collect all of them and look for them coming soon as a collection on soon.

And don't forget the sale going on over at Lori's shop...

Next stop .....  Traci Penrod
