About a month ago Krysia (Aka SparklyShoes) put a post on her blog titled Make Do and Mend demonstrating how she had patched up an old pair of jeans with some lovely star patches cut by her "bigshot" machine
Curious to find out more about this machine i got intouch with Krysia.
She told me it was a magical machine! A pasta type machine with a handle that you turn. You get 2 perspex flat things with it, add a die (which is your shape cutter), add your fabric and turn the handle and hey presto the machine cuts out these lovely shapes!
Still curious i asked Krysia if she would cut out some designs for me if i sent her some felt.
Below is a small selection of what she returned to me.
I love them!
Not wanting to waste them i am taking my time deciding what to use them on but if you pop by again tomorrow i may just show you where i have used my first flower!
She can be found on Folksy http://www.folksy.com/shops/kryshees and also has a lovely blog if you fancy taking a look http://kryshees.blogspot.com/
Below is just a small sample of what you can find in her folksy shop
