My image this week is from our sponsor Robyn's Fetish. He is called "Santa Was Here". He reminds me of the fabric Santa Clauses I used to make about 11 years ago. I have been longing to pull out some fabric and whip up a couple of dolls....to tell you the truth. I just had to paper piece him and give him a down home country feeling with the paper and the buttons.

Just lovely stuff! Do you do all digi? I do almost no digi! Do you use Spellbinders dies to make your edge (etc) cuts? I only have 2 of them. But I do have a several border punches, and some fancy cut scissors. Of course these are old, but I still use them occasionally. My favorite toy to creat with is my Cricut. But even if we don't use the same tools, I'll bet I could create things in the same style. I'm really trying to learn how to make the vintage-y things you make! Thanks, Jessica
