After reading how Kay transferred some of her photo images onto fabric, using label paper as the backing stabilizer - I had to try it with one of my CPP doodles. It worked perfectly, so much so, I had to show the fabric wrinkled, or you might think it was a paper copy. Check out her directions here.
After making the copy, I added paint and above you see it drying out on a paper towel. I heat set with my iron when it was dry to the touch.
When it was drying, I thought about what I would do with my now painted fabric doodle. If I had no plans for it, it would become another UFO pitched into the scrap pile; a habit I'm trying to break..... My first thought was to do one of those self-challenges where you make a quiltlet a week for a year. I quickly put that out of my head when I realized after the first two weeks it would become a chore and no longer be fun or even creative. But, I did decide I would make each doodle into a 12 x 12 quiltlet. The only rules are that- there are no rules.....
*it has to be 12x12 approximately*
*it has to have 3 layers (at least)*
*it has to use only recycled or collected/found goods from the house, and sewing stash*
(meaning I will not go out and buy specifically for this project)
*eventually I will bind them together into a fabric book*
So, above, you see the diamond piece, remember I worked on it last year? I didn't like how it was progressing, it went into the scrap bin. I pulled it out and cut into the background (saving the center wreath for another project) for my first quiltlet. You can see the operation in progress, below.
