So this wan't my original plan,  my original plan was way more cool then this, but eh, this is pretty cool if you ask me.  I still have the original plan in the make, but it was well to complex for me to finish in time (considering my kids haven't been cooperating with bed time lately)





What I did was trace out the scissors skully logo onto my black fabric, and layer 2 pieces of cotton chiffon behind it.  then with pretty rainbowish sparkly thread (which my machine HATED  it kept snapping, and caused my brain to explode on more then one occasion) I  stiched around and around and around  (until my brain was at it's explosion limit)  After I was done stitching I took the scissors out and cut out the skull and scissors.  Then I turned it into a pillow.

Now I have have craftster love to hug when I'm to tired to craft anymore and to tired to cruise craftster.   Grin

Oh and I don't take any credit for the idea.  There's one dude on Project Runway who does something like this.  It creates really cool demension in his garments.   In my case it just made a cool sparkly pillow.

I'm not obsessed. I'm excessively enthusiastic.
