Big Shot Quilted Purses!
Purple Hearts-using the Big Shot to cut fabric

Shades of Purple-Fabric circles and flowers cut using the Big Shot

I have said many, many times that I love working with fabric.  But, I don't like to sew.  One of many reasons why I love my Big Shot is that it cuts through fabric (up to 8 layers) with ease allowing me to craft with all the fabulous colors and textures of fabric without the sewing part.

I made these cards using scraps of purple fabric and buttons I had in my stash.  Purple is my favorite color, so that seems to be the most prevalent color in my collection! 

Fabric circles and flowers 017

Just a little history of the fabric: The flowered purple and blue fabric is left over from when I made the valances that hang in my craft studio.  The satin fabric is left over from when I was making lavender-filled sachets and the two tone purple fabrics are left over from one of the many fabric ornaments I made for Christmas.

I experimented adding starch to the cut pieces before assembly.  I think the starch gives you a much crisper fabric piece.  I also used fabric glue to attach the fabric to the card stock.  Regular Snail or Mono adhesive does not work.

For the larger card, I attached all the circles together using a rhinestone in the center of the smallest circle.  I used my paper piercing tool to pierce a hole first.

For one of the smaller cards I sewed the button to the fabric.  On the other, I used Crystal Effects to attach it after cutting off the shank so it would lay flat.
