Add a Brad challenge

The Art Impressions Design Team are helping to launch two brand new stamp & die sets on the Art Impressions blog today!  These are the COOLEST little Swiss Army knife die sets - a his and a hers.  You won't believe some of the amazing projects that the DT has to share today (they raised the bar!) so I came up with a little flannel cowgirl shirt with a stitched pocket to hold the new die cut knife.  Here is Utility Die Set Hers (Sku #4751):
 It doesn't show up too well in the photo, but I used my sewing machine to add some decorative stitching to the pocket, then stitched it onto the shirt; and I stitched along the edge of the collar & placket.  I sewed a couple of buttons down the front, and added a kerchief square to the pocket.  I even put a little flesh coloured cardstock in the neckline, to make it look like skin tone!
 And here is the knife all put together, and tossed into the pocket - this is how the recipient would receive the card.  Below are all the die cut pieces that come in the set - and you can see that there is a small sentiment for each of them:
 Assembly is quick and easy, since each piece is die cut with a hole, and you simply thread a brad through three pieces on each end, and you're done.

 Our current challenge is called "Add a brad" - so be sure to link up your creation over on the Ai blog, there are always fabulous prizes to be won.
