Skip Along Designs

Isn't that a happy name for an etsy shop.  The owner of this shop is Dee and she has filled Skip Along Designs with so many wonderful vintage images that I just had to share this shop with you.  The best part is that she continues adding images so each time I visit it is like Christmas :)  First I will show you what I created using some of her images and then I will give you the link so you can visit her too. 

Ok now "Skip" along over to her esty shop and take a peek at all the other wonderful images.
I had such fun making this bunting banner I just had to make a few more.  For the first one I used my Cricut to cut out the letters to spell "Precious" from some of my reproduction 30's fabric and then using a zig zag stitch attach them to the purple polka dot fabric.
Cutting fabric with the Cricut machine is very easy.  Just back your fabric with "heat and bond".  With the fabric side up, place the piece on the Cricut mat.  Make sure that the pressure level is set on max with the speed level set to high.  See -----easy peasy.
This next banner I left plain.  I just love this fabric and I didn't want to cover any of it up :)

I hope you will all take a minute to visit Dee.  I know you will not be disappointed !!  Tell her Mimi says HI   :)

How cute, especially that first one with the sweet little animals, and I can see why you would want to make more than one!

Oh my gosh! This is so cute. So glad I stopped by!

Hi Mimi,

I have a question for you, if you don't mind my asking. The Great E from Creative Breathing had emptied her art room a couple months ago. I was extremely lucky to have been given a Halloween banner, compiled from different artists, like yourself.

I just started making my own today and am using E's banner as a guide. I just LOVE the little trick-or-treating girl you put on your "L" card. I was wondering where you got her? It looks like she's a paper punch, but I cant find her anywhere. She's a siloutte and is adorable.

Thanks for your help!
