Super Easy 30 Minute Headband

My daughter is the seamstress, but she has bitten me and the “disease is spreading!”  I don’t think I’ll ever sew the beautiful clothes that she does, but I sure like trying smaller projects that I can ink and paint!

 I found this great pattern on Etsy here.  If I can do it, you can do it:)

The quote is a favorite of mine

I think I’ll be making more:)

So, I made another zippered bag…I need a lot of practice:)

With this one, I used my Gelli Plate to paint the fabric, once I had my outside pieces cut out.  (Muslin) I added a textile medium to the acrylic paints, and then heat seat them when dry.

The textile medium assures a soft finish, rather than a hard dried paint that can crack.  It is also washable.  I practiced on some scrap pieces of muslin first, trying to decide on the color and basic tools for the design.

The colors and prints are limitless with the Gelli Plate….

The zipper was a little tricky for me, as a beginner, but I learned a little something each time.

Thanks Anna!!
