I am so excited to be a part of the blog hop launching my good friend Ann Butler’s new Faux Quilting stamp designs with Unity Stamp Company©.  Congratulations to Ann for these awesome stamps!  Being that I love to create my own fabrics and materials, I chose to create my own custom fabric using Ann’s stamp designs.

5-1-13 ink and stamps

I used all of the stamps designs along with Versa Magic ink.  The ink is archival and suitable for fabric (I used plain cotton muslin).  Just to be sure I heat set the ink with an iron with no steam.

Simply stamp combinations of the stamps in various squares.  I have to admit it was very zen like creating this fabric, and how easy it came together.

I wanted a “quilty” look to this project and decided to use thread to highlight the lines between the stamped designs.  My fabric was layered with batting and another piece of muslin.  I then used different colors of thread to stitch up and down and across the fabric.

I loved how this fabric turned out.  It reminds me of the 30’s and 40’s vintage colors and designs.  My big decision was what to make from this cool fabric.

I decided to make a pillow.  I cut the fabric down to a 12″ x 12″ square, set it face down onto a piece of felt the same size.  Then machine stitched around the square, leaving a 3″ opening.  I then  clipped the corners corners  and turned the pillow right side out.  Stuff the pillow with your choice of polyester fiberfil.

Finally,   I created more fabric and free motioned stitched flowers for the center of the pillow.  I used cookie cutter shapes as my pattern.
