First Use for the Circle Cut Outs

I was going to be making a new batch of fabric baskets...different sizes and shapes. So I decided to decorate some with the circles from the pillows. I love when flowers are done with simple shapes.

Add some stitching to the edges so they don't fray away to nothing and viola! Floral theme. And I love me a little raw edge fray :)

These are pretty small. Perfect for desk tops and vanities. I tossed in a few things to give an idea of size.

Now I have the rest of the bunch to do. 2 larger, 2 medium, 2 rectangular and 1 an in between rectangular size. Oh, and coasters from some cut outs from the basket. More cut outs :P

...again, the colors were too washed out or too, um, off...the last pic shows it best.

I don't know how you do it, but those are great! Throw your supplies in it, on the go... they would look neat, like three on a shelf, with various sizes of paper (fabric, books, etc) on them! {:-D

These look great!
I'm still trying to decide what to do with all of my cutouts from my name albums. I keep them around because I just know I'll think of the perfect project someday!
