Ann Butler Designs Blog Hop



Hi Everyone,

I am so excited to be a part of this fabulous blog hop!  My close friend and Designer, Ann Butler, has designed two brand new stamps lines with Unity Stamp Company and KellyCraft Innovations and also a brand new line of inkpads from Clearsnap!

Ann's new line of rubber stamps allows crafters like myself, who love the look of quilting but don't sew.  As you will see with my pillow, it looks like I spent hours and hours quilting the front, when in reality the pillow took me less than an hour for me to create.

Join me along with 11 other professional designers as we bring you some great ideas on how to use these wonderful rubber stamps and inkpads. You won't be disappointed!!!

Thanks for joining me. Until next time...

Instructions
1. Fold flour sack or muslin in half and place a piece of cardboard in between.  Stamp pattern out first on a piece of paper.  Stamp out design on the muslin using the paper as a reference.  See photo for the colors and patterns that I used or create your own pattern. Place in dryer for 15 minutes to heat set.
2.  Place pillow insert in between the stamped fabric, pin the front in place leaving the back unattached.  Using white embroidery floss and a 3” long needle, attach buttons to stamped squares through the pillow insert but do not sew them to the back.
3.  Wrap the back of the flour sack or muslin around the back of the pillow insert and glue in place.   Pull the front tight and adhere to pillow.  Fold each side under three times and adhere to pillow insert.  Add ribbon to each corner of the pillow and tie in a bow.  Adhere a bow to the center of the pillow.
