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.

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!

I am also an independent distributor for Plexus supplements, since I credit them with enabling me to be healthy enough to do all these fun things! 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 :-)
