Here's a project I put together last night to cover up an unsightly gap in our kitchen. The idea was sparked by a Cath Kidston book that had appliqué flowers.
Very short term I considered hand cutting out the felt flowers by hand.
Then I came to my senses and realised that the Big Shot is the ideal tool. It took about 20 minutes to cut out all the pieces. They were then ironed onto the fabric and embroidered with detail.
Easy peasy and nice & quick!
