I have had a lovely "Crafty Monday" today, exploring fabric textures. We used Bondaweb, all sorts of printed fabrics to make textured pictures, free motion embroidery, stitch and flip quilting, and I remembered at the last minute an amazing fabric called "Shrink Polyester" that I bought at a craft fair earlier in the year. You stitch it to your fabric layers and then iron it gently. The polyester shrinks and creates artful wrinkles in your fabric... Look!
How fun is that? The one above was Karen's (don't you just love those vibrant colours?), I cut my piece into two and made some cards with it, using some very pretty Stampin'Up card stock (certainly celery and marina mist) and the gorgeous silver glitter sheet:
PS I also learned today what happens if you put your Bondaweb the wrong way up when you iron it...you have to go and buy a new ironing board cover, that's what! Not doing that again!
