So anyway......I am super excited to say that I have passed all things Cricut on to new owners and have ventured into the world of the Silhouette Cameo. I am still learning.....but WOW....what can this machine not do?
One of my first projects is this super adorable gift for my neighbor. She is having a baby in a couple of months and when I saw this I HAD to reproduce it. And the Silhouette made that a very easy task!!!!!
I use to sing "Baby of Mine", from the movie Dumbo, to my kiddos when they were little; and sometimes sing it randomly even now that they are not so little anymore... (excuse me while I wipe a tear or two).
This is a super simple starter project....but I love it nonetheless!
I picked up the Silhouette Printable Cotton Canvas from a great local craft store. I saw it and just had to play with it. I love playing with new materials!!!!
I found the image and recreated it in Silhouette Studio using the tracing tool. I then colored it in, chose a fun font (A Yummy Apology from DaFonts.com).
I printed out the design and then cut it out with the Silhouette (yes...it is just a rectangle...not extremely impressive....but give me some time....I have only had my machine for a couple of weeks.....I will get there!)
I did sew together the little washcloths too. I found a little tutorial on how to make these washcloths...super easy....and they are so much better than the cheap ones I found at Shopko. And 100 times more adorable too!
