I decided to try a technique I saw on Pinterest, and got what I thought was really cool results. It's just a credit card and a little bit of fabric ink, paint would probably work too. It takes a bit to get the right touch, my daughter was trying it too and we wrecked several of them, but once we got the hang of it, it's so quick and easy and looks great! I can never have enough ways to make birch trees :-) The original post was an elementary school art teacher doing this on paper with her students, I think it looks even better on fabric. Here is a link to that post: http://cmae-adayinthelife.blogspot.com/search/label/Student%20Art?updated-max=2011-12-02T22:26:00-07:00&max-results=20&&by-date=false
I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing. After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now starting to design kits and patterns Some of these are now available from Keepsake Quilting also. I teach classes at a local quilt shop, The Material Girls, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
