Deka iron on paints
These are my unfinished first experiments with Deka iron on paints and i just loveeee them,so had to show the colours before i start working on them !The middle ones my very first go so a bit tatty and messy but i quite liked.Waste not want not lol,a lot more experimenting to do !
My inspiration comes from here
I bought them here
I,m off on my weeks holiday Saturday,I will take these pieces with me to embroider button n bead in the evenings and will blog when they are finished.
The photos dont do these colours justice,they are so bright and pretty especially on the ribbons they almost sparkle......just had to order more they are so easy to transfer to fabric,just painting your design onto copy paper then using a hot iron lay onto the fabric,easy peasy lol.I have ordered golds and browns last night,sooooo inspiring.

These are Fabric Charms,its just laying down a mixture of fibres then a layer of Organza and free sewing over,really easy,I need to get a neater edging though,practice makes perfect lol,and finding the right stitch on my machine !
The theme for this one is our own choice but using either fabric paper, fused layers using bondaweb or solvy or any other technique,this has a number of techs,mainly Fabric Paper,watercolour paper,and Angelina Fibers .
They are all my last couple of weeks work for my group swaps,I have joined 2 new groups,I,m really enjoying the challenging swaps,these are all fabric,my next one a chunky book,theme being dark and Grungy Gothic Arches,so i,m looking forward to that,NO fabric work lol.
