Ranjitha here. Hope everyone is doing great. I am back today with some transfer it crafty inspiration. Before I move ahead with today’s project let me remind you, the theme for our Monthly Challenge is ” Glitter and Shine ” Don’t forget to play along, it would be fun to see you join the challenge.
Transfer it sheets are trending right now and these are the quickest and easiest way to add interest to your home decor and other projects. So, today I am here with some unique inspiration. In this post, I am going to show you how you can use transfer it and instantly transfer beautiful images on to fabric and also would share with you some quick and easy fabric gift ideas.
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.
This was my inspiration for today.
