I always associate red, white, and blue with July, I guess because of Independence Day. Well, that’s our theme this time around at Cut it Up – Red, White, and Blue.
You know I’ve been on a clear-it-out kick this summer, right? Well my granddaughter grew out of her medium-sized diapers and is into large now, so she needed larger diaper covers. The Adaptation soaker from Ravelry.com is the one that works best for her. The little legs keep the poop in! I checked my stash of leftover wool and found partial skeins of red, white, and blue. Perfect project for the Fourth of July weekend! I used up every yard of that red and just have a little white and blue left.
The Hello there tag was just hand cut, I think. I wanted a blue background, so I removed the black and replaced it with a scrap of blue. I don’t recall where the stars came from, but I do know the Happy Birthday was cut from Elegant Edges. I measured that and went back to Elegant Edges to make a shadow using the same scrap of blue. Put them altogether with In the Navy and Berry Trendy Twine, some brads and an eyelet to make a tag.
My daughter didn’t need the tag, so I recycled it and made it into a card with some very old Close to My Heart paper and the Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder.
