Sewing Silhouettes

So this one of the many projects I have been working on this last week…

I found some pretty wooden plaque thing-a-ma-jigs at Michaels for $1.99 each and the scrapbook paper was on sale for 25 cents a sheet.

I cut out the paper after I rubbed the edges against the paper to get the form of the plaque… I then Modge-Podged it up!

Then after smoothing out the bubbles I take my silhouettes that I traced and cut out of black cardstock paper and placed them where I wanted them and Modge-Podged some more… I love Modge-Podge… I love saying Modge-Podge. hee hee

Smooth out as much bubbles as you can but don’t fuss over too much because it is paper you are working with… it will tear. Here is my completed project:::

I am also using the same technique to make silhouettes of my kids. One down, one to go. I am including some of my silhouette photos for you! Enjoy!

Here are a couple of the silhouettes that I did on photoshop. The Scissors I traced from my own scissors and the needle and thread I drew free hand…as well as the letters. So the only one I have right now that I actually did on photoshop is the Dressform. But here are the ones I have =D
