I drew out a wonky star on cardstock for my template, raided my stash, and cut out a bunch of stars to fit on the blue gingham I also found in my stash. I also cut out stars from fusible interfacing. I sewed each cloth star to a fusible star right side to "sticky" side, cut a slit in the fusible, and turned them inside out. I also embroidered the star.
The backing is a white cotton from my stash ; )
It's a bit of a late Christmas, but I know they'll be glad to get a fun package in the mail. Big brother Asher is getting his cape and Lenci and Zoe are getting these.
Wanna know how I make a label?
1. Type up in Word the message you'd like to be on the label. (Make sure it's on 100% so you know it's the size you really want.) Make it BOLD so you can see it better through the fabric. Pick a great font!
3. Grab your trusty No. 2 pencil (sharp!) and the label fabric.
4. I like to put both the paper and the fabric in the embroidery hoop so it's stretched nicely and you can see the printed letters through the fabric.
It takes a bit more time than printing on fabric or writing with fabric pens, but I think it looks great and is completely hand made! Plus, I can make it in whatever fun font I can find!
