Sweet lil bunny!  Selina sells them in her etsy shop: Selinahudsondesigns. With the purchase of these pendant blanks you get a "How-to" sheet and this cute little bunny embroidery design. This design is free!
 Of course you can stitch up your own design or fill them with pretty vintage fabric too.
They come in a pack of three. 
She cuts them herself!
I am so proud of her creativity!
I filled this one with a little drawing....I keep thinking "Love".
This is another shape she is trying out...a banner style pendant blank. 
She Also makes tag shapes in pendant blanks.
Of course she also has the mini hoops....which go with my pattern below.

Be YOU tiful freebie

I have been doodling and illustrating a lot this week because I am in a Fabric design workshop.
I drew this in a few minutes...and was very pleased with how cute it turned out.
Sometimes things that are easy and free spirited turn out the coolest. 
This would make the sweetest embroidered pillow tuck on a little shelf!

Copy and save...and please tell you friends about my blog...where every friday is a new freebie!

These are just some of the motifs I have been working on this week.
This is a screen shot of the work.
Before you make fabric designs or repeating patterns...
you have to make the elements or motifs for it. 
I love working with these colors...they make me happy.
Plus it reminds me of a party!
I want to tell you to run, don't walk, to Target!

Everything was only $1. 
Cute little jars of glitter and push pins 
So darned sweet! 
Cute stickers! 
Banners, doilies, fabric tape...clothes pins with glitter! 
Clothes pins with felt that look like arrows 
Spools with colored jute. 
Yarn on clothes pins 
Tags of all sorts. 
This is a large spool with jute and clothes pins...this was $3. 
I think the spools would be great to wrap ribbons on.
