Carrots!

The front porch was needing a little touch of Easter.  I was inspired by Uncommen's kitchen table.  I just free-handed carrot shapes onto fusible webbed back fabric and ironed them on my pillow panels.   The greens are just made from long strips of 2 shades of green fabric. Just for fun, I top-stitched the carrots (b/c nothing says fun like top-stitching).


 I found this image at the Graphic's Fairy (It's from Alice in Wonderland).  I saw the coolest technique over at Salt Tree. She just ironed  freezer paper to the back of fabric(to add stiffness) and sent it through the printer.  I had very low expectations (today it took me 3 tries to print out regular paper) but it worked! So gonna do that again.

 Happy Easter!

  5. Great pillows, very colorful and cute for Easter. What a fun way to use the graphic, I hadn't heard of the technique before but it's very clever. I would have been skeptical that it would work too :)

    Thank you for sharing on A Crafty Soiree.

  6. Oh my gosh, it did work! So, you just ironed the paper on to give it stiffness then peeled it off??? Holy smokes, I've got to try this!
