For the Love of Spellbinder's Compatable Sets!

For the Love of Spellbinder's Compatible Hop Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop. This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop, "For the Love of ODBD Spellbinder's Compatible sets" If you got here from Julie's Blog, you are in the right place!  Otherwise simply visit the ODBD blog for the entire list!  Check out each link and leave a comment.  One of the posts is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate. So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love! You have until Wednesday, May, 23rd at 6 pm. The winner will be announced May 24th! 

Now, here is my creation 



 This is a barrette I made using satin fabric, organza fabric, Stazon Ink, and ODBD's Sweet William  and Sweet William Small sets, as well as the Coordinating Spellbinder's Die, Blossom 3.

The layers of white satin were stamped with blue Stazon ink, cut with the blossom 3 die, and I layered in some organza at the same time so the die cut both the satin and organza together for each layer.  I sealed all my edges with a candle.  It gave a bit of a curl to the fabric and lifted the edges of the organza enough to give plenty of dimension as well.  After layering all the layers together, I stitched through the center to hold them all, and then added a few little beads to the center.  On the back I sewed on the barrette.  I then took a ribbon covered hair band and attached the barrette to it, so it can be worn either way... just a barrette, on a hair band, or as a clip on a bag, flip flop.... whatever.  Super easy with these tools!!!




Here are the sets I used:




 

Thanks so much for stopping by.... and now I am the last name on the hop, so why not hop back to the ODBD Blog  and tell us what you thought!  
Blessings,
Grace

How very lovely! I am a little intimidated by the idea of sealing the edges with a candle. Your project is so pretty....I am afraid I might scorch the fabric.
