My Fabric Egg & Silhouette March Promo ~

DIY | Easter Inspiration 

Silhouette has a great promotion staring today, so they sent me samples of their new Heat Transfer Fabric Interfacing - both sewable and clean cu for me to play with. Today I am going to show you a little project with the sewable variety. 
 Now I want to be very clear, I am not a seamstress (not even close). I truly am still learning how to use my sewing machine (yes, a bit embarassing) - and I thought this product was amazing! It was like magic watching my Silhouette cut the fabric. 

I started by creating a simple egg shape in Silhouette Studio, ironing on my interfacing and instantly I had these two shapes cut and ready to go.
 The interfacing definitely made my flimsy fabric feel much more substantial.

I sewed them together and stuffed my egg (don't laugh at my "bunchiness" - operator error).

I made a few linen flowers. And attached them to my egg (yes, with hot glue. I know this is a sewing project, but I love me some hot glue).

I then decided to add a little ribbon to the top to hang.

Now for the awesome deal from Silhouette!
Our lovely friends over at Silhouette are offering a great package deal:
  • A Silhouette SD
  • One of each fabric interfacing (clean cut & sewable)
  • A roll of white flocked heat transfer material 
For $229....yep, that is a great deal!  
Also, readers that already have a Silhouette can get 25% off fabric interfacing...whoot, whoot!

All you need to do is enter "INSPIRE" as your promo code.
Act soon, as this offer is only good until the 27th.

Today is the last day to vote!

It's adorable! The fabric is gorgeous! I'm still learning to use my sewing machine too. And my husband ordered me a Silhouette for our anniversary so I'm going to have to figure that one out too! But I can't wait for it to get here!

I don't sew at all either. This turned out really cute though. :) I love the little rosettes.
