Let The Shopping Begin

Yeah, the first three patterns have been released!!!!  While you are gathering your stitching supplies I have a list of finishing supplies for you.  These are just suggestions and you should feel free to make substitutions to fit your own style.

Chipboard--I buy mine at Hobby Lobby

Low-loft quilt batting

1/2 yard cotton backing fabric--I used a green with white dots

Weeks Dye Works wool. I use Collards Herringbone but felt would work 

DMC floss for twisted cord  2 skeins 3865  1 skein 321 1 skein 221

Straight pins

10/0 red beads

Peppermint ribbon--again Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook area

Fabric glue

Pinking shears or rotary cutter with pinking blade

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

  1. Was the peppermint ribbon sold by itself or in a pack with other ribbons? On a roll or cardboard? Wasn't able to find it....

  2. What is chipboard? I don't have a hobby lobby near me, so i went on line and when I typed in chipboard - it only brought up cut out letters? Is it like mat board?

  3. Yvonne..peppermint ribbon is sold in tiny rolls in the scrapbook area. Hobby Lobby also sales it on line. I have some extra rolls if you can't find any.

    Pat..it is lighter weight than mat board...looks like the back on an old fashion tablet...grayish and heavier than poster board but less than mat....excellent for smaller projects.

    1. So you could use the back of a pad of paper? Would that work?

  10. Which tools do you recommend for cutting the chipboard to get clean cuts? And what is the surface you put the chipboard on for cutting ... anything like a self-healing mat like Xacto makes?

    Thank you for sharing.
