I hope your new year has started off well. Already we are half way through January - time is certainly flying by! I think my mojo flew with it, I have had none for about six weeks now which has been very frustrating :( then finally I had some inspiration!
My DT kit this month included some Websters Pages. I love Websters about as much as I love Prima and Graphic 45 so this was a great kit! I was wanting to create something different with the fabric ribbon and inspiration didn't hit until Monday afternoon, and then I had to rope in my bff to help. I decided to decorate a plain calico apron I'd had for some time in my OTP stash, but I can't sew for the life of me - I certainly didn't pick up mothers creative prowess in that department :) so thank heavens Rebecca lives just round the road from me!
Fabric ribbon comes in a pack with 5 different designs each 18" long. I took two of them, the blue script and the floral strip, cut them in half to create a long piece and sewed two of the ends together, creating a length of 36" which we then gathered. The blue was sewn on top of the apron and the floral was sewn on underneath with a layer of gathered tulle in between.
I've then embellished the pocket with a mixture old Prima flowers from my stash, BoBunny flowers, and even one from the accessory shop Diva. I've also grabbed a Prima mask and used paint to dab the design on. The same goes for 'create' - this was a very old foam alphabet stamp with paint. The trick to using paint on fabric is once its dry, to heat set it with an iron.
And yes after I'd finished I then decided to pop in some Websters pins :)
So there you have it - something a bit different with fabric ribbon instead of only using them for layouts - I wonder if I've converted anyone over to the dark side of OTP with this project ;)
Thanks for dropping by and may the power of mojo be with you :)
