I finally fixed the pillow.

I have had this pillow sitting on my sewing table for a while now. I thought I need to fix this, I have been putting it off because I have never fixed a pillow, But I thought maybe I would make a tutorial on fixing pillows, this blog is my journey through the craft world, sharing mistakes and everything, I think I did a pretty good job but maybe you know more than me and can give me some tips to share, I'm always welcome to hear comments, constructed criticism is always welcome.

Butterfly and Tulip card tutorial

This is only the forth card I have made, I have watched a lot of videos to show me how to do things so I want to share my journey of learning to make crafts with you, hopefully soon I will stop feeling like a forth grader in art class. showing my projects here helps give me reason to do them. I used the Cricut Expression 2 and the Gypsy with "Walk in my garden" cartridge and "Once Upon a Princess" for the butterfly.  Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions, as I said I am new to this, I want to share my journey as newbie. also who should I give this card too? If you think I should give it to you let me know I may send it to the person with the best answer.

My dog Mandi

This is Mandi she is a yorki-poo, I made this from the Four Legged Friends Cricut cartridge. This was but from dog10, but I added the ears from dog 8  because my baby had long ears. I glued magnets on her back so I see her every day, I keep this in my craft office in the basement, because Mandi is too afraid to walk down the stairs.
She only gets to come down when a tornado is coming, then she wanted to play in the kitty liter, so no more fun in the basement for her, she waits for me at the top of stairs.

This is a Family of my friends Pets. I made these using my cricut.
The big dogs were all from the Animal Kingdom Cartridge page 125, their tounges were not included, I made their toungs from a basic flower from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge, I had the flower already and cut the petals off and slipped into the mouths.

The small dog was from Animal Kingdom page 124 I reversed the head and cut in 2 colors to get the likeness of the dog, I cut by hand where the dog has color.

Both cats came from Animal Kingdom page 130.

The Guinna Pig came from the Four Legged Friend Cartridge, it is the Hedgehog, I just cut out the hedgehog on my cricut and then cut the points off, I again cut out in 2 colors and then cut the second color by hand to match the real color of their guinna pig.

The fish was from Animal Kingdom page 120 and 121I did the fish bowl water, plant and fish, then after I glued together I covered the  fishbowl with clear contact paper to look more like it was glass and not paper.

The tortoise was also from the Animal Kingdom page 118 I just used the head function key for the front view.

I gave these to my friends but did not glue them on the paper I decided to let them do what they wanted with them and they decided to add magnets to the back to put the on their refrigerator.

Let me know if you have any questions.
