Welcome to the Vintiquities Workshop 5 Days of Tutorials
Campaign Blog Party!
Each day this week I will be posting a different mixed media art tutorial and campaigning for your votes.
I am in the running for a sponsorship from Prilosec OTC and if I get it I will be able to provide
FREE Video Art Classes Online.
Your votes can make that happen!
***Voting ends this Friday!***
So come back everyday to see a new tutorial and bring a friend!
Now onto todays tutorial...
This is a quick and easy tutorial that shows you how to make hand stamped ribbon out of an old pillowcase.
I buy old pillowcases for their decorative crochet trim and for their embroidered designs to use in my mixed media stitched projects. I'm left with the rest of the pillowcase that happens to be perfect for stamping on because of the tight weave of the fabric.
You will need:
1. An old light colored pillowcase
2. StazOn Permanent Ink Pads
3. Rubber stamps of your choice
Ink your stamps with StazOn permanent Ink and stamps your designs in a row following the grain of the fabric.
Cut a slit at the edge of the fabric with scissors then grasp both side and rip the end of the pillowcase off.
Cut a slit at the beginning of your stamped column then tear the remaining length.
Cut slits to determine the width of your ribbon then tear each section into strips.
Clean up ribbon strips by pulling loose thread off the sides and wind them onto a card, spool, or old clothespin for storage. This is great stuff to make up in advance and have on hand for any crafty day.
Come back tomorrow for a layered flower tutorial with free pattern!
And bring a friend!
Have a great day!
