I was SO excited when I received my AccuquiltGO! Baby Cutter a few weeks ago. Being a lefty in a righty’s world of sewing scissors, I’ve always hated cutting out my projects. I’m sure there are left handed sewing scissors out there, but I’m too lazy to look for them. When I was younger I’d really play up the whole lefty incapability part and my mom would always do the cutting for me :). Thanks, Mom! And sorry…
Enter a small, non-electric machine that will do cutting for me? Um, ya, sounds great.
One thing I love about the GO! Baby Cutter is that you don’t have to be a quilter to appreciate it (although any quilter surely would). I was at Walmart the other day and found single white onesies for sale for only $2. I love to have onesie’s on hand to add to a gift, and knew the GO! Birds die I have would be just perfect to give it a little something extra.
Here’s how I spruced up my onesie in literally 5 minutes:
First I ironed Heat n Bond Lite to the back of my fabric pieces (which were cut to the approximate dimensions of the bird body and wing).
Next I placed the die on one side of the cutter…
Added the fabric…
And topped it off with the cutting mat.
With a quick roll through the machine,
My birdie pieces were ready!
I peeled off the paper side of the Heat n Bond and ironed the bird onto the onesie.
Lastly, I appliqued around the wing and body, about 1/8″ from the raw edges so they will fray overtime.
Done! Now I have a cute onesie ready to add to a gift.
I’m off to make more!
