So today I did a deal with myself. If I got one apron finished this morning then I could have the rest of the day doing stuff for me!
I have been keenly following The Graphics Fairy, especially Brag Monday, and many others all of whom seem to be a dab hand with fabric, freezer paper and an ink jet printer! Now I bought some freezer paper nearly three years ago and I dragged it all the way over here with me but I never got around to using it! I suddenly realised I was actually nervous to do it in case I wrecked my printer! Ha! So after giving myself a good talking to, along the lines of "for heavens sake the world and their Uncle have been doing this successfully get on with it", I got on with it! And just look what I made! I took a pumpkin print from the Graphic Fairy, I made a background in Photoshop and overlaid said pumpkin, printed it on calico and with a bit of beige wool fabric made this lovely cushion.
And it didn't stop there! I also found some sheet music and these pretty birds and flowers, also courtesy of the Graphics Fairy, layered them in Photoshop, printed them and put them in very cheap (but nice) frames from Dollarama. Total cost per picture? Around $1.50... Suzanne would be so proud of me! Excuse the bad lighting it was late but I was excited to share!
Ok so now I am off to make some fabric pumpkins....Happy Thanksgiving!
