Today I am creating with Rebekah Meier Fabric Elements! Wow – did this ever push me out of my wheelhouse, but I’m very happy with what I created. The DCC (Designer Crafts Connection) is sharing wonderful designs using Rebekah’s kit and I’m happy to be a part of this great group.
Fabric Elements is a fabulous product line developed by fellow CHA designer, Rebekah Meier. If you are not familiar with the product, please check it out at Rebekah’s Etsy store (rebekahmeierdesigns). You can also find more information at Rebekah’s website, www.rebekahmeier.com.
The kit included a lot, but it didn’t include the one item I fear the most – a sewing machine! 🙂 JUST KEEP IN MIND: I started with plain canvas fabric.
Sewing, working with batting, rotary cutters and straight lines is just not what I do, but I was up for the challenge and basically followed the kit’s directions. Frankly I am shocked my sewing machine didn’t just laugh at me, but it was still working and didn’t let me down!
When I read the instructions the first time I knew I’d have to read them a few more times and I still messed up something but I’ll leave it to you to figure it out ( *I think I hid it pretty darn well, though). I didn’t realize ‘how involved’ it was going to be, but once I got started I discovered that I was REALLY ENJOYING myself!
