A while back, eons ago in blogger-time, my dear friend Holly over at 504Main held a little giveaway.
She was giving away Silhouette products.
She had shown projects she had done without the cutter but with the products.
They were WAY cool.
You should check out her blog, 504Main to see them!
Well, I have been sitting on the products for a while, contemplating just what to do with them.
Then, I was lucky enough to get a Silhouette and have been singing along with it...
(if you have one, you know it sings, right?)
Then I decided that I really need to try this Heat Transfer Material.
It was in yellow, which is a hard color for me to work with.
It's just not in my general color palette, you know?
Well, I had one of those "Duh!" moments when I was looking through some knits in my stash for another project.
So, I stopped what I was doing, Sorry Hollie, your jeans wont be mended till next week...
Well, I got to work with the Silhouette Studio.
I started with a simple Sakura flower.
Do you know what a Sakura flower is?
I made lots and lots of them. Rotated them. Made them different sizes.
Then arranged them in the shape of shirt bodice piece.
Then followed the easy-peasy instructions on the Heat Transfer Material.
Then I applied it to my fabric piece.
Can I tell you just how FABULOUS this Heat Transfer Material is??
It is AWESOME!
This is not your craft-store will do for 1 wash stuff.
This stuff is in it for the long kid-wearing/washing haul!
It is nearly effortless at being flawless!
I am a huge fan! And can't wait to get more colors!
So, I was nearly ready to take pictures when my sweet Angel told me it didn't sparkle enough.
So, I got the hotfix crystals out.
Have a look at how it turned out!
Then I got inspired and made a matching fascinator:
Thanks Holly for the fun products! I have the best fun with them!
Have you visited my Linky-Party Directory?
I like to link my projects up on all the places there!
If your linky party is not listed because I have not linked there, or maybe don't know about it
