First, I wanted to do some decorated onesies. I had bought the most adorable iron-on transfers made by Plaid on clearance for $1 per set of 2 transfers. I couldn't pass that up! I made two last night:
I just ironed the images on following the instructions that came with the transfers. (Set iron to highest cotton setting, no steam press firmly on hard surface for 60-80 seconds, let transfer paper cool, peel off paper)
Didn't they turn out super cute? I love the squirrel one! I was planning on sewing ruffles on the butt of that one using pink and white gingham, but my sewing machine broke last night. *sigh* Hubby is supposed to "fix it" tonight. I think it's beyond repair this time, but we'll see.
Another quick easy project I did last night was a picture for the baby's room. If it's a girl, I'm now leaning toward a grey, white and yellow color scheme for the room. Here's what I came up with:
I took a blank canvas from walmart (I think this one is 8 x 8 inches, but I'm not sure). I painted it a dark grey with acrylic paint (black and white mixed together). After it dried, I took some cutouts I made on my Mom's cricut last weekend. I used ModPodge and spread it over the back of each cutout with a paintbrush. I laid the cutouts where I wanted them and pressed them down fairly hard. I let them dry for a bit (around 10 minutes or so) before coating the whole canvas with another layer of ModPodge. TaDa! In less than 45 minutes or so, I had a super cute picture that will either hang in the baby's room, or get given to someone else!
Next time I make one of these, I'll try to remember to take in progress pics! I have to make at least one more now, in my "boy" color scheme of red, black, and white! ;) If I keep this up, I'm going to have double of everything!
