Hiya and Welcome to the Bee Crafty Blog
Today I am sharing with you one of my recent makes for the Bee Crafty Show's on HOCHANDA
Bee Crafty Products used...
Fashionette's 'Vera' - polymer stamp
Wordage 'Beautiful Things' - polymer stamp
Fabulous Flowers 'Star Flowers' - polymer stamp
This make is something a little different to show that the Bee Crafty Polymer Stamps are not only for paper crafting
I used my sewing machine to create a fully lined Tote Bag, I used some pretty floral fabric and and white fabric.
I stitched a piece of pink dotty fabric onto the centre of the bag.
I stamped 'Vera' onto printable canvas fabric (which I had pre-trimmed to fit) using black Archical Ink. I used fabric paints to colour 'Vera', mixing and repainting to create layers and highlights. Once dry I ironed over the painted image using a travel iron and a piece of scrap fabric to fix the paint.
I stamped the 'Beautiful Things' sentiment stamp at one corner using archival ink and painted 'Julie-Ann' by hand with a fine paint brush and black paint. I stitched this panel to the front of the bag into the centre of the dotted fabric... I used a loose running stitch on my sewing machine but free stitching and over lapping for texture.
Next I picked out some fabric flowers in colours to match nicely with the painted image and also with the floral fabric. I stitched them onto the bag front at the corners of the image using free motion stitching just in the centre's, I layered a few up, I added some flowers that I had stamped onto fabric scraps using archival ink which I had fussy cut out.
To finish I added some flat back gems into the flower centres and opposite corners of the the painted panel using Ranger Glossy Accents glue
