Pictures that show off two presents a little better than previous shots.
Tias’ gift to Sandra, a cloth shoe organizer for the back of her door which he embellished with freezer paper stencils.
Given the number of closet organizing devices made from cloth, I see huge potential in this idea. Polka-dotted sweater holders, shelves stenciled with bike helmets…pretty or funky or bold or graceful.
We had some problems, as the plasticized cloth on the only fabric model available in local stores didn’t seem to grip the freezer paper well and that was then exacerbated by the runniness of the combined acrylic paint/fabric medium. We had much better results with projects that used standard fabric paints. Lesson learned for next time.
Simplicity 3835 sewn for Sandra for Christmas. I’ve made this pattern twice before. This one, though, had a sweetness and spring-like freshness that meant I had a hard time giving this away. I hope it serves her well in the warmer months.
It had better, or it’s moving into my closet…
