I have done several of these, and I prefer to buy the kits. The fabric is all coordinated for me, and it goes so easy. I use a kitchen knife to poke the fabric into the crevice. You won't get the desired result without the kit as it won't be as smooth as you like.

I didn't like doing it. Everyone is different.

Any ideas if this would work? Have you ever seen this?
I haven't done this, but I've seen it done on shows like Simply Quilts, etc. You could proably do your own design and have a work of art. I mostly saw it done for cornice boards or decorative quilt squares to be used as wallhangings.

I got one once from Mary Maxim. and I had a 40% off coupon so it wasn't so bad really. It does have all the material and everything in there. I made it but then I wasn't sure what to do with it.

I made some of those back in the late 70's. We used styrofoam.

I did this years ago with styrofoam and it worked really well and looked nice. Very different
Look than just framing a quilt block.

I too saw that in their catalog and thought it looked really cool. For me, I probably would buy a kit just to make sure I had all the right stuff. Then I can see what they used and make more later buy buying my own foam board and fabric, etc. At least I would have all the right materials and directions to do the first one. I did make pumpkins years ago using this method buy purchasing styrofoam and orange fabric or opening orange raffia and pressing them into the foam. Turned out really cute.

I bought one at a craft show and did it. It was fun, but a little frustrating. You definitely need at least an inch thick foam to do it, so invest in that. I have it hanging as it is a Welcome sign, and it is very pretty. Enjoy.
