Hanuka Bunting

Published by under Crafts,Silhouette

Even though I love bunting, you’ll be surprised to know that this was the first time I’ve made it! I basically just added tabs to letters in Silhouette studio and then added a […]

So my friend Coco is a lioness. It’s kinda an inside joke, but it’s cuz she’s fierce. I felt the need to emblazon this on a shirt for her so she could advertise this to everyone else. Plus it gave me an excuse to try out my rhinestones. I started by laying out the words […]
