I saw that the challenge over on both the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog and the Simon Says Monday Challenge Blog was FUN with Felt!! =) SQUEAL!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Felt!! I have been creating up a storm using the Simon Says Stamps Plush Party Bunny Wafer Die Set along with Plush Spring Time Basket Wafer Die Set and the Mini Flower and Leaves Wafer Die Set!! I've been having FUN altering the Die Cuts to create some other projects to get MORE out of my Dies!! I just LOVE being able to use them for SO MANY different things!! =) So I created a Sweet Little Pig along with a Larger 3-D Basket for my Niece to carry her Sweet Little Pig around in from some October Afternoon Fabrics and some Felt!! =) For the Pig I Die Cut ALL of my Pieces and then just made the ears alittle smaller!! I Stitched it altogether and then added the Mini Flowers to the her Ear!! I used the Button Die Cut from some Soft Pink/Peach Felt from WPlus9 for the Pigs Nose and Stitched it too the Face of the Pig!! For the Basket I drew out a Pattern using the Spring Time Basket Die to create a 3-D Basket!! Here's a Picture of the Pattern I made!!
It's SUPER EASY to create and then I used the Die to Cut out the Fabric Pieces from the October Afternoon Fabric and then used the Pattern I made to Cut my Felt Pieces out to create the Shape and the Liner of my Basket!! I like to double it up just to make it more stable, but you could totally just do this in a Single Layer if you want!! Then I Stitched it up and added the Handle also included in the Set!! I layered this up as well and again I did it to make it more sturdy so it could stand up to LOTS of Wear and Tear from Raelee!! =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you come back because I have a Couple MORE to share!! =) Have a FABULOUS WEEK!!


  1. VERY SWEET LARISSA! ;) I'm SURE your little Niece will LOVE THIS! Your fabrics are PERFECT for this & I LOVE your creativity!

  2. Oh just stop it!! This is ridiculously CUTE Larissa! Your rocked this my friend, love it!!

  3. Could this be any more adorable??? I grew up with a penchant for piggies, so of course I squealed (no pun intended) when I saw this delightful little swine. LOVE each and every one of your fabric choices and thought the structure of the basket wit the zig-zag-edged handle was just brilliant. Thank you so much for making me smile and for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
