I'm happy to say that I'm all ready for Valentine's Day....and it's still only January. Yes, it's the last day of January, but still. I'm glad that I am finished early.
I took photos along the way, showing what I did, just in case you are wondering.
|Fuse neutral fabrics to heavy weight interfacing. Postcard size pieces are 4x6".|
|Add color and design to a piece of white fabric. I used a homemade hot glue stencil and some |
Tumble Dyes. Set aside to dry.
|Get out one of your favorite stencil designs. This one is Random Squares (6x6") and is |
designed by fellow Stencil Girl designer Jessica Sporn.
|Using the stencil and some metallic paint, apply the design to the background.|
|Add some stitching on the background.|
|Apply fusible to the wrong side of your pink fabric. Create heart shapes and cut out.|
|Fuse a heart to the background and stitch around the edges.|
|Add thread stitched details. You can add words too, if you like.|
|Final steps include fusing fabric to the back side of the card and then zigzag stitching around the edges.|
Now I'm all ready to send out some love!
