Cup Koozie

Big Shot Project -- Cup/can Koozie

Material needed: Su Fabric, Big Shot, Buttons, Scallop Circle Bigz die, Fun Flowers Bigz Large Die, batting, Sewing machine, Bakers Twine Ribbon (Early Espresso, Lucky Limeaide)

Directions: Using the Big Shot Cut out 8 Scallop Circles using SU fabric of your choice, 4 Scallop Circles out of Batting, 3 Flowers using the Fun flowers Bigz L die

Assemble:  Place 1 SU Fabric Scallop Circle face down, place Batting down next, then add the 2nd Su Fabric Scallop Circle face up on top of the batting. (make sure scallops all line up) Sew together in a circle pattern. you can tell on my picture I used a designer stitch. I could not sew a perfect circle so this is what worked for me! :)  
  When all 4 scallops are sewn you then sew the first 2 together with a small seam allowance.(from top to bottom instead of a circle) Then sew the 3rd scallop to the 2nd, also use a small seam allowance, next sew the 1st and 3rd together so the first 3 circles are sewn together. Now sew on the bottom using the same seam allowance. All done!

I have also been seeing these 365 days or 52 weeks of something and that got me thinking! I have 3 resolutions i am making this year  ok I just thought of another one so 4 sesolutions for the up coming year. Here they are.

1. 52 weeks of blogging. I am going to blog something every week.
2. 365 pics of my pugs and me. Sounds easy enough right?
3. Keep in touch with friends/family and make an effort to meet up with them at least once a month.
4. Actually finish the class/project I start!
