Hello! Ever promise yourself you're going to explore something, but never ever give yourself time to do it? That's me! So I set aside the whole of this afternoon to play with fabric paints! Here's how it's going so far!
I'm using a couple of different types of fabric paint - Setacolour Opaque and Dylon fabric paints - both available at Homecrafts (oh how I love Homecrafts!). The fabric is from there, too, its quite thin but before I make it into a bag I'll be lining it, so I think it'll be ok - it certainly takes the paint really well. I've mixed colours of my own using various combinations of the paints - they cross-breed quite happily I've found. Both require ironing to 'set'. This little 'Robin on Aliums' will be finished using some free-motion embroidery, and maybe some beads, ribbons and fabric scraps...watch this space!
I lost track of time! Sorry ladies, I'm shocking for getting side-tracked...
BUT I have now, finally, taken the draw, as shown in this little collage...
So congratulations Sarah MacCall! I'll be emailing you shortly with details on how to claim your prize :)
To the rest of you - I'll be sending you an email to, to thank you personally for coming over to enter, and to offer you a little something too!
Did you know that in a few days, you will no longer be able to grab free plastic bags when you go shopping? It's a great move, and one I've been hoping for for a really long time from an environmental point of view. And it sneaked up on me - I didn't realise it was so close until my friends at UpCycled.London gave me the heads up! Thanks guys! Luckily I was already busy making these re-usable bags...
So, I want to help you out by giving away one of these little beauties! Just comment below, and I'll pick a winner a week from today - on the 9th of October 2015. The winner will receive their choice of shopper. Simple! Good luck and lots of love. Tor x
I buy pretty fabrics and make stuff...
