You are my sunshine...

Do Crafts for a while now have been bringing out lots of soft crafting materials, so there are different types of material etc to go with the ranges they launch.
Now I have used them to make toys and bags etc but this time I wanted to do something different with them, this time I wanted to show all our traditional papercrafters that you can design and create with the material as if it was paper on a lot of projects - the material gives your project a very tactile approach though. I love it!
I had so much fun creating this project last night that I got a bit carried away and didn't go to bed until 2am! But I think it was worth every minute....
Here is the canvas that I created, it's an 8x8...
 And here are some close ups for you to see.......



I love the finished project.... I will take it to my demos for the rest of this loop so that you can see it if you are there.
Have a go at creating something with fabric, I'd love to see what you come up with - and if you use Do Crafts fabrics, make sure you pop on over to their facebook page and share it with them as well.

Whatever you are up to today, have a great day.......
