MFT teaser time!

 It is Pure Innocence teaser day at My Favorite Things! I have a special little fabric project for today! Here is the little tutorial so you can follow me along!

 I started with an old hankie...this one has a large stain in the other corner so it was perfect to cut apart!
To stamp my image on fabric I always reach for versacraft ink by Tsukineko.
 I trimmed a little closer to my image with a straight edge and a rotary cutter. Makes for quick cutting!
 Here are the copic marker colors I used on my fabric. If you have been to one of my copic certifications you will have seen in real life how to color on fabric. If you have never colored on fabric before....try it out on a little piece of scrap first. Fabric acts very differently than paper!
 Using this FABULOUS new Die-namic die that is being released this month I cut out a couple pieces of batting and created a window in my kraft card stock.
 I centered my image under my card stock window and trimmed off any excess fabric.
 I placed my two layers of batting under my fabric so that I created a nice plush front. Then I stitched it in place to my card base.
