Monthly Experiment for March: Creating New Fabric from Scraps

Here is my experiment for March – just under the wire! It's a method for creating a unique piece of fabric by fusing fabric scraps, stamping with metallic paint, layering with sheer fabrics, machine stitching and cutting the sheer fabric to expose the stamped images. This is a technique I bookmarked to try (someday...) after first seeing it a few years ago in the Fall 2005 issue of Quilting Arts magazine (page 24). It is somewhat labor-intensive, but definitely worth further exploration...

Another Use for Watercolor Canvas...

I was working on my fabric postcards today and discovered that watercolor canvas makes a great backing and can be run directly through the inkjet printer. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of using it before!

Acme Flowers Stitched

I had a blast adding simple stitches to my felt flower postcard. I just need to add the backing and it will be finished.
