Make it Monday- Ice Queen applique jacket

Good Monday gang!  I have a little princess to share today.  For Christmas I made Parker an Ice Queen applique jacket.  I ordered the jacket from Amazon and added the design to the hood.  She was the first I made and I have made a few since.  You can find the hoodie version in the Parker on the Porch store.  Pics below.  

Since created the jacket the designer I bought the file from updated her.  She looks AMAZING in my opinion.  You can see more HERE in the shop.

Kid Friendly - Fabric Christmas Tree Ornament Tutorial

Fabric, cut into 6″ length then ripped roughly into 1.5″ sections.  Doesn’t have to be perfect.
A couple tree branches or sticks
Ornament hooks
items to decorate your tree, we used sequins
Glitter Dust™ & Zots™ Medium
Trim down your stick to roughly 6″ or size as desired.  Tie your fabric pieces to your stick until you like the way it looks. Attach your ornament hook to the top by twisting it tight.  Trim down your fabric to create the “tree” shape.
Using Medium Zots™ create a strip of sequins for your little one to use to decorate.  Bonus most kids like to peel stickers and you just created them a whole sheet!
Once you are done take them outside and give them a good shot of Glitter Dust™ and enjoy!

Make it Monday- Tinsel Town Stockings with Heat N Bond

Happy Monday! today we are going to make a stocking project using HeatnBond® Fusible FleeceHeat N Bond® Fabric Adhesive and new iCraft™ Deco Foils!  I made my stocking using Dear Stella’s Christmas/Winter line, Tinsel Town. To start I used a free pattern for the stocking byPositively Splendid. Her pattern printer perfectly and I honestly just winged it putting them together.
 First I created two stockings.  The first I made for the outer lining and I used HeatnBond® Fusible Fleece to “puff it up” ;)  I then created a liner stocking and attached the cuff.  Pretty simple stuff.

For the fronts of the stocking I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut my fabric using Heat N Bond® Ultra.  Next I decided to trim out the edges of my snowflakes and trees with new iCraft™ Deco Foil.  Using the adhesive draw around the edges of your design.  Once dried to a clear state simply press the foil onto the design.  Give it a good rub.
I used two colors of foil on the snowflakes.  Instead of doing a 2nd pass of blue foil I did green.  I really like how it come out!  What do you think?
