Dress Up Your Space: “Create Bunting”

Hello everyone! Here is another non-paper project using digital items. I confess that since I discovered tee-shirt transfer paper I want to use it all the time. I made this bunting for my scrap space using the transfer paper and the Banner kit by Deena Rutter.

Apart from the kit you will need an iron, plain fabric and patterned fabric, pinking shears, ribbon or twill and a sewing machine.

I wanted the colours of the bunting to be grey and yellow, but the kit didn’t contain any grey triangles, so I recoloured the blue ones to grey. To do this I added a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer, checked the Colorize box, and played with the sliders until I got the colour I wanted.

Then I added the letters to spell out Create on alternating yellow and grey triangles. I used the custom shape tool to add the heart shapes.

Once printed out onto the transfer paper, I ironed them to the triangles cut from the plain fabric.

Then I stitched the smaller triangle to the larger patterned triangle.

Once all the triangles were complete, I stitched them to my twill and hung it over my shelf.

You can use different colours and words to adapt this to any occasion, like birthday parties and also for the upcoming holidays.

Isn’t it great all the kinds of projects we can use digital kits for?

    Oh my! I never thought to make custom fabric with my digi kits! The possibilities!!! I sew, and sometimes I wish a paper was a fabric. Thanks for the idea! :)

    Love it! I made a similar one using the printable fabric sheets (I think Avery makes them. I found them at Walmart with the labels). I cut out canvas diamonds, folded them in half and stitched the digi-fabric onto the front (leaving a small opening in the top for twine). I love using my digi scrap materials to create other projects!
    Here’s a picture of the banner I made. :)

    Thank you Francine! This is lovely.

    I have just made a garland using my word for 2011. Here is a picture of it:

    I now want to make a fabric one using the technique you show. Love it!!

    Glad you like it! I was very happy when the idea struck.

    Loved your banner Ruthanne! I’ve been looking for those sheets, but haven’t found them so far.
