It seems a little crazy to think about sunprinting at this time of year, we're down to about 3 1/2 hours of daylight, and it's been around -30 degrees for a week! I've heard you can do it with lights, I might have to try that...In the summer, (or someplace much warmer than here!) it's very easy to do. Just paint fabric with Setacolor fabric paints, lay an object on top of the fabric, and put in the sun to dry. The paint fades under the object, leaving a print. My chickadee is made with a light switch cover, the moose is a copper Christmas ornament. It's fun to experiment with different things...leaves, a wire cooling rack, the options are endless. Add some free motion stitching and you have a quick little project.

I've never heard of sunprinting! I should have Larissa look into this. She's the artist in our family!!

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 designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!

They target blood sugar and gut health, which are at the root of so many modern health issues. E-mail me for more info, or check out my website! I am as passionate about getting people healthy as I am about getting people creating :-)
