Rock On

What a fun quick project this one was that I have to show you today. My daughter wanted a funky little case for her itouch and this worked perfectly! First of all the image.....this is from the pure innocence collection called "Tweeny Tween Rock On" from My Favorite Things!
A couple of Christmas' ago I made both my son and daughter large bean bags so this image totally reminds me of what I see when I walk into their rooms.
Here is a close shot of the image...I have had a few people ask me about ink for fabric. I use VERSACRAFT ink from Tsukineko for stamping my images and then heat set it with my iron. This image I stamped on it is very textured. I colored it with my copics. Copic will fade over time in the wash...just like any other dye based ink so I try to stick to projects that I may occasionally throw in the wash but not wash daily.
I had fun with her bean bag chair. I "fabric pieced" it by stamping it on a scrap of my lining fabric and then cutting it out and running it through my creatopia to give a fabric adhesive to the backside (like a big sticker).
After I was done with my image I cut it out with my spellbinder die and added sticker backing to that as well.
The fabric is GORGEOUS Michael Miller corduroy! I didn't need to add cotton batting at all because the fabric was so it!
Here is a shot of it with the itouch tucked inside. I measured her itouch then added 1" in width for my cut out measurements and added a little extra length so that I could roll over the top to reveal the fun lining. Added a button and string to be able to secure it and it was done! My daughter loves it!
Enjoy your day!
