I love fabric and designing it, I love France, I love making small fabric structures that are sustainable as accessories, home decor, gifts, jewelry, and I loved walking through the Paris Las Vegas resort! So what perfect way to combine them, and make affordable art crafts that you can wash, wear, display, and use! All of the crafts will have my art, inspired by Paris, France, the Eiffel Tower, and the indoor shopping boulevard facades of Paris Las Vegas resort, that you print out onto washable, inkjet fabric sheets, along with using a yard extra of coordinating cotton, a few inexpensive notions and findings. All of the tools you can buy at a craft supply or fabric store, use 50% off store coupons to save even more - you may already have the tools!
These are easy to wash, just follow the directions on the inkjet fabric manufacturer's packaging, place in a lingerie bag, by themselves, and wash on the cold delicate or permanent press cycle with mild detergent, and then place in the dryer, while still in the lingerie bag, on low for 15 minutes, or stand / lay on a towel.
I use Thermoweb Ultrahold exclusively, which is an acid free fusible web, an iron on, paper backed fabric adhesive, that I use as the patterns to back my fabric panel parts, which also gives structure to the frame, and helps hold in the inkjet ink when washed, I found. You can get a 5 yard roll for as little as $5, while using a Michael's store coupon 50% off.
Thanks, and I hope you enjoy this project, and these crafts!
