Just Us Girls #81 a spring template challenge


Hey JUGS fans!  We are back with more fun with Just Us Girls...this week we are challenging you to make and share a spring themed template project.  I chose a non paper project (*gasp* I KNOW!).  These cute bean bag felt chicks at Martha Stewart.com inspired me to pick up needle and thread for some sewing fun!  You can find the free template and all of the instructions at the link above.


As per usual, I made project alterations as they suited me as I worked through the steps from a pile of supplies to finished chicky.  Super fun!

For tons of spring themed template ideas, be sure and check out the JUGs DT and
 our guest designer, Teresa Kline.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

For this project I used a piece of vintage fabric in my stash, buttons, craft felt, pom trim from Stampin Up!, embroidery floss and rice to fill the body.  Project link provided above.
