Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    1. Copy your images onto the heat transfer paper
    2. & 3. Iron the images on thin cotton fabric, cut it out and cut a matching piece of heavy cotton fabric
    4. Zigzag around the image in an oval shape
    5. Zigzag different colors & textures of yarn around the image to create a frame
    6. Create fabric twine (like I did in my 2011 book, The Big Ass Book of Crafts 2)
    7. Twist two thin strips of fabric together clockwise while twisting them together counterclockwise
    *Jump in, you’ll get the hang of it
    8. & 9. Hot glue the fabric twine around the image and embellish with fabric & plastic flowers
    10. & 11. Embellish more images with E-6000 glue and seed beads and Allure Dimensional Design Adhesive Paints
    12. Add your pinbacks to the backs with more E-6000 Glue
    Wear as a brooch, on a bracelet or as a necklace
