I used to be quite the seamstress- coats, blouses, pants, winter coats, etc. I haven't done any real sewing for years except household stuff. When I heard you could use the Big Shot with fabric, I was intrigued, but not enough to actually make something!!!! Then my room mate for Stampin' Up!'s annual Convention made a bag for me. Wow..... I was blown away and very touched that she made me one. I think it is absolutely beautiful. Thank you Amy Fecteau. What she doesn't know is I fell in love with the material so much that I have ordered an upholstered chair for my work room in a similar fabric.
