Summer Flag Tutorial

May 28th, 2012 | Posted by Emma in Inspiration | Tutorials | Uncategorized - (1 Comments)

We’ve had a wonderful weekend! It’s been hot and sunny and feeling just like summer! The boys played in the pool, sprinkler and slip n’ slide and Dave and I trimmed the hedges, mowed the lawn and planted the last square of the square foot garden with some big healthy vegetable plants.

Brennan was so inspired by the fun he had Saturday and Sunday that today he wanted to make a quilt to celebrate it! (I so love that kid!!) Together we came up with a project so great, I thought I’d share it…. (more…)

Stamping and Coloring on Fabric

January 20th, 2009 | Posted by Emma in All | Crafts - (0 Comments)

Yesterday I played with crayons and stamps on fabric! I have this lovely stained-glass look stamp, which I stamped with Fabrico black ink. After ironing that to set the ink, I colored in the images with fabric crayons. Look how the coloring looks rather dull and rough until I set the crayons with the iron too…It was so fun to see what the iron would do to the crayons, I tried it several times! I think I’m going to make these little images into something, so the last photo is finding the right fabric to go with them. 





What do you think I should make them into?? Pin cushions? Little quilts? Key chains? Tiny wall art? hmmmm…
