Fabric stamping


I know I am a little late getting this teaser up but it took a little more time than a card to create...but oh so fun! You can catch all the teasers today on Kim's Blog. I just love soft little books, wish I still had babies to play with these but I do have some little ones in my life I could share it with! How about a little softie book focusing on seasons? Yeah!
I used a combo of canvas and Michael Miller Fabric for this project....they look fabulous together!
Here is "WINTER"...using the "Flurry of Love" pure innocence girl with the new "Make the Date" set for all the sentiments in this book! I colored her with my copics and made a little felt snow pile under her feet.
Spring and Summer....these cutie pies are also being released tomorrow! They were perfect for my spring and summer seasons! Colored with copics to match the fabric colors.
I zig zaged up the middle of my book to secure then I hid those stitches with this pretty iron on felt ric rac.
How about apples for fall....This PI girl "Apple for you" was perfect for this season and I did a little chocolate brown felt under her feet.
Here is a shot of the back of the book. I made sure to catch my embroidery floss when sewing up the back flap...so that it can wrap around the little button to close.
The words in this "make the date" set are SO useful it made coming up with this idea quite easy...
Come back tomorrow for the official blog hop release and shopping!

This is adorable. I sew too and this is a perfect mix of stamping, colouring and sewing! What ink did you stamp with? Rebeccacell at gmail dot com Thanks in advance!

Sherrie said...

I stamped with versacraft ink by Tsukineko...the perfect fabric ink to use with copics...just heat set (with your iron) before you start coloring.
