Before you leave your comment I want to show you what I've done with my Go!Baby. I have 3 of the Go!Baby Dies. The one I chose to use first is the tumbler.
It is so easy to use. You put your fabric on the bottom die cutting plate and then the plastic cover goes on top of the fabric. With a short crank of the handle your fabric is cut into your desired shape. It reminds me of making sugar cookies with the cut out shape and the little bit of left over around it.
I made the tumbler shapes out of my Joann's Denise Schmidt fabric.
I used my design board to lay out my tumblers into a bow tie pattern.
Then I sewed the tumblers into rows vertically. This is my first set of 4 rows. I am not sure yet how big I want to make this project.
To add some fun to the bow tie pattern I wanted to put buttons in the middle. But I used cheater buttons from fabric. I've been wanting to use this Yuwa fabric by Suzuko Koseki for some time now and this seemed the perfect project.
I appliqued the buttons onto the center seam of the tumbler bow ties made with matching fabric.
The buttons look so real but if I decide to use this as a baby quilt it will be child safe. I think it turned out really cute.
There is so much to do with the Go!Baby. I am excited to use it for upcoming projects.
Now leave me a comment telling me you registered for the free patterns through email and that you want to win a Go!Baby. I'll pick a winner with a random number generator on Friday July 22, 2011. Good luck everyone. The giveaway is open to everyone. Check back on Friday.
