I made these cute alphabet coasters the other week. They are a little time consuming to make because of all the cutting, sewing and printing. But overall, it is a very easy tutorial and super fun once you get into the swing of it. You can see the post here and the full tutorial over at Momtastic.
I also made a few extra letters to write my son’s name..
While working with the freezer paper and fabric ink, I made a really stupid mistake. Truthfully, it’s something I often do right out of the gate. So I thought I would write a quick blog post on it.
While I have a Silhouette Cameo, I chose to use a marker, mat and X-Acto knife to cut the letters. As you can see, I cut the square around the letter “N” a little too small.
If you aren’t super conscious of the size of your freezer paper, you may accidentally swipe the sponge and ink onto your fabric..
This can ruin your whole project.. After the ink has hit the fabric, it is usually too late and can’t be wiped off..
I’ve had this happen way too many times. Usually at a critical moment and I have to start over.. Just wanted to share a little FYI on the subject! If you want to see one of my favorite freezer paper projects, click here to see my market totebag.
Well that’s it today. Make sure to stop by on Thursday. I’m super excited about my upcoming project – It’s my turn on the Riley Blake Union Jack blog tour.
