For the first project today, I am making a simple and easy fabric tag. I am using cotton fabric for this project ( it is always recommended to use only cotton fabric while transferring images on to fabric for best results ). I transferred a beautiful African lady image on to the fabric and added some words using my clear stamps with archival jet black ink. Finished it up by layering the fabric onto burlap and felt for giving support to my fabric. I stitched through all the layers, however,you could use any suitable glue as well.

Coming to the second project for today, I added transfer it images on to a drawstring pouch. Instantly adds in so much interest to a simple plain pouch. You can use the pouch to present little gifts or just store those tiny delicate jewellery of yours and prevent it from getting lost in your bag.To enhance the look I again stamped a sentiment using my clear stamps and archival black ink (you can use any permanent ink as well )and then blended the background with Craftangles stencil and archival ink.

The third project is a simple but beautiful tag. I started by trimming a piece of watercolor paper to size and then transferred the mannequin image onto the paper. Then, took a scrap piece of net fabric and added it to the mannequin image such that it would look like the skirt. Then added some yellow flowers to cover up the raw edges of the fabric. Layered the tag onto some burlap and yellow card stock to add interest and also bring everything together.

For the last project for today, I have made fabric buttons and then transferred cute images on to the button. You can use the buttons as is and adhere them onto clips ,kids brooch pins etc. But in this project I have made a simple fabric yo-yo flower and then added the fabric button onto it. I turned this into a hair tie. You can make any hair accessory like this with the fabric of your choice.

  1. Beautiful
    Have been missing all the mails to date. Glad I found it today.
    I have a doubt.. While doing it on Fabric, should the background be white? Can it be done on darker backgrounds and natural jute colour.
    BTW, am a dental surgeon too.. retired though.

    1. Hello Sujatha. Thank you so much.Its nice to know that you are a dental surgeon too.You can use the Transfer it sheets on any coloured fabric. But, however it is best if you use a lighter coloured one so that the image is enhanced. You can give it a try though as it also depends on the type of design you choose. If your design has just black outlines in it, it shouldn’t be a problem even if you are using a darker background. And don’t forget to share your makes with us and tag us along. We would love to see your creations. Happy crafting!
