This week's challenge was to use two cuts and to have an animal, or something for an animal.
I cut the two needed pieces from the fabrics then decided to make a stencil with vinyl and my Cricut. I first cut an owl from Give a Hoot at 3" (page 28) then a pair of sunglasses from Groovy Times (pg 55 shift) at 1 3/4 inches. for the owl, I made a stencil by removing the actual cut out so the remaining outside stuff is the stencil. I stuck the vinyl onto the jeans piece of fabric and used a brayer to really get the edges down. Then I used the sunglasses cut and put them where I thought the owl eyes would be, and again made sure it was adhered well using a brayer. The fabric was dark so I put a layer of yellow fabric paint on first, after that was dry I mixed some colors to get a green that was close to the lining (flannel) fabric. I let it all dry over night then stitched the sunglasses case together. After finishing the sewing I realized it would be better to have an image on the "front" of the case. So, out came the vinyl and this time I cut the sunglasses (again from GT pg 55, shift) at 2" real dial size.
