Here is a recent Baby Name Collage I did. I donated one of these at our church bazaar. The winner recently had her baby and called me with the name.
Here is a closeup that shows some stitching and you can see part of the bumble bee's path above the C Block.
Here is a picture of her quilt and I matched it along with the colors of the room: Sage Green, Browns and Tans.
I wanted to do a path for the bumble bee like the quilt but I did not want to glue down a bunch of small pieces. I did a cut of the bumble bee path on the Cricut and used the cut as a stencil. Here is how I did it:
STEP 1 - Draw the line in Illustrator using the pen tool.
STEP 2 - I gave it a stroke of 5pts and clicked on Dashed Line and put in 12pt/10pt for the Dashed Line.
STEP 3 - Click on Object - Path - Outline Stroke.
STEP 4 - Click on the initial path and delete it so all you have is the dashes - check it in Preview mode to make sure you just have the dashes.
STEP 5 - Save as a SVG and import into SCAL. After you cut it you can use this as a stencil for the bee's path. I used an ink pad to color in the stencil.
I'm not thinking many of you would need a SVG of a bee path but you never know. Email me if you don't have Illustrator/Inkscape and I'll send it via email if you would like it for an upcoming project. Thanks for stopping by!
