Wow i can't believe it's already well into the first week of 2009! I think this is going to be a great year! CHA is just around the corner and we are busy here with new products. The sneak peaks will start in a few weeks!
For our Christmas this year - we gave all handmade, recycled, reused (including thrift stores/garage sales) or green gifts! It was so much fun to see what everyone came up with. I gave everyone my favorite resuable shopping bags. The small one i keep in my purse at all times. Plus i made pillows with my new sewing machine!! We just got it as a wedding gift. The last time i used a sewing machine was in my jr. high home-ec class, and it all came back to me. I used bunch of random fabrics, plus I thought it would be neat to use the Out on a Limb rub-ons for my sisters pillow!
To put the rub-ons on the material i first used a temporary adhesive to lightly adhere the back of the fabric to a piece of wood to make sure it laid flat. I used the brown owl rub-ons, then seemed to go on the fabric the easiest. (i've noticed the rub-ons don't work on all fabric - so it's best to do a little test first) I also used a thin layer for fabric modge over the rub-ons. I loved the way they all looked on my couch- i may have to make more for myself! When we were shopping in downtown Chicago during the holidays we went into Urban Outfitters and look what we found!!! They were just shipped, so this was the first time we saw them in their stores- it was pretty cool to see our designs hanging there!
