Eileen Hull Art With Heart: Sizzix Stitchlits

Long before I discovered paper and ink, I was a quilter. I loved hand quilting and made numerous quilts and quilted decorative items. And then I developed arthritis and all of that changed. It hurt too much to push the needle through the fabric. Recently, Eileen Hull came out with a line of dies that create premade holes. I LOVE these!

The pre-punched holes makes sewing a breeze! They remind me of the lacing cards that we used as children. Yesterday I used the dies to create an acorn. Today, I made some fun little hair clips.

As you know, each month I participate in the Art With Heart Challenge with Eileen Hull. This month, the theme is "A Stitch in Time".
Since the dies cut perfectly each time, I can cover the threads on the back to create a piece that looks polished and professional.

Link your project fun and take the Art with Heart Challenge! Each month, Eileen offers a generous prize. This month, it's a set of Stitchlits.

We want this to be a place for everyone to create, inspire and share.  We would love to see what you can do with Eileen Hull’s fabulous products but this is not a requirement.  Use what ever products your artful “heart” desires.  Art is for everyone so come along and share your Art with Heart!
