Using Iron-on transfers


This week I have been working on little
gifts. This one in for the Swap for all
seasons Winter swap. We were suppose
to make a 5x7 fabric collage. Here is my
finished work. I will be sending it out
soon, and can't wait to see the sampler
I get by someone else's hand in return.

As you can see, each one of these gifts starts
with an iron-on transfer.
 










The heart pillow is actually to hang
on a doorknob or sit on a dresser or
in the bathroom. I made this for my
sweet blogging friend Kristin of signs
and salvage. Our birthdays are the
same day and we will both be celebrating on
Sunday Feb. 13. She sent me
one of her lovely vintage signs,
and I am going to post it later
with other things that have been
sent to me.



 

























This piece is a hanging pocket for
my sister. I will be traveling to
Pheonix this weekend to go thrifting
and antiquing with her. I wanted to
give her a Valentine. So this is it, and
it has a little gift tucked in the pocket.

My partner likes primitive not vintage...so scary...did not know what to do. Wait till you see it...I will post later this week. I am better with paint & glitter I think!!
