Designer Crafts Connection Challenge with Connie Crystal

This month we're working with Connie Crystal's new crystal sheets - they come in black or white and they are blingtastic!



The crystal rhinestones are set on string mesh, so you can cut the sheets into any shape or even single rows, and you can glue or stitch them to just about any surface.

I cut up my sheets to make a cute little quilt block, then I stitched them in place to black fabric to make a mini pillow.

Now I want to make a whole rhinestone quilt! This little pillow is such a sweet sparkler. You could make a crystal quilt block for a wall hanging, a fabric gift bag, or a pretty sachet filled with lavender.

Now you can go check out what all our other designers made - click the hop buttons on the DCC logo in each of our blog's sidebars to travel through the hop. You can also go straight to the DCC blog and see all our projects there. Have fun!
