Light Up Cards

This month is the rough two year anniversary of my sewing habit. In that time, I have made half a dozen quilts, several shirts, a couple of skirts, and a dress. But all of this got started with a little Klutz book I picked up on a whim at our school’s book fair: Paper Fashions. Whenever I felt stressed out, I set to designing clothes. And then I got out my sewing machine to make them.

Ironically, I didn’t make this shirt, just added the appliques, but it’s a good example of paper to fabric.

But then there’s the question of what do with all the paper fashions? Sure, I can make magnets out of them, but at some point, I’m going to have a lot of magnets cluttering up my refrigerator.

Solution: make cards with them.

And with some help from Chibitronics, I even made them light up!

You can’t really tell in this picture, but one light is white and one is pink

I even tried my hand at a shaker card and attached one of my magnetic outfits to it.

I accidentally knocked the outfit while taking this picture.

Looking forward to giving these out!
