Quilting Bee Invitation
How will your friends resist?
I know, I know I'm just "sew" full of good ideas for creating invitations to your sewing party. Here is how to create a quilting bee invitation:

  • matte board (readily available at any art supply store)
  • fabric (*old, no longer useful napkins can work nicely)
  • spray adhesive
  • vellum (in any colour you choose)
  • fabric daisies
  • hot glue gun (you can also use white glue)

Cut matte board into a square-shape. Cut fabric to a shape about one-half inch larger than the matte board, using a pair of scissors Spray adhesive onto the fabric (*make sure you are in a well-ventilated area). Bring up the sides of the fabric and attach them onto the board. Cut vellum so that it fits neatly on the invitation. With a pen, write "Quilting Bee," making tiny "x"'s so that each letter looks like it has been cross-stitched. Attach vellum to matte board by gluing a daisy onto each corner.

Place invitation into an envelope and send. I just know that your friends will appreciate this wonderful inducement to sew!
