Sheltering tree Stampin Up ♥ Stamp it on Fabric Fabric + Coin Purse+ Box

 Project 3 of 5 with Sheltering Tree Stamp Set

Hello!   I'm excited to share with you this post today! Look I have stamped on Fabric with Sheltering Tree Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! to make coin purses.

I LOVE purses, stamping and  sewing.  The  pinkie coin purse  with the tree stamped  was specially designed for my upline Michelle Last. I  added to Michelle's coin purse a silver slide letter "M" on the handle as a wee personalised touch for her.  Michelle just called me and I know she got her package so now I'm allowed to share this post  with you. I hope you like it !

Sheltering Tree Stamp Set from Stampin Up was perfect for this wee project ... 
I also have made  a  box to package them. It is a slide box  and I made I video to show you how I made them.


I found various free patterns and tutorials  online  to make coin purses and I gave them a try and the one I used to make these little purses is the one I like the most in terms of size, shape and  it also fits perfectly on to 8.5  sew-on metal frames. On top of everything the little coin purses are  adorable, aren't they? 

You can use any smooth, absorbent fabric material to make  this purses and before stamping all you need to do is ironing the  fabric to get it flat and ready to stamp on and then I cut out the pattern.  Please click here to see instructions and download the pattern or click here to see video to learn to draw your own pattern.

Once I cut  the fabric  I started stamping  the bike chassis with Archival slow dry permanent ink and the hearts (from retired Stamp set Best Day Ever) with Pacific point, coastal cabana, pool party inks.

I applied straight away Clear Stampin Emboss Powder before the ink dried to protect the images and I sewed the pieces together.

The last step was attaching the sew-on metal frame which is in my opinion a very easy process.

To stamp the tree trunk on the second coin purse I also used Archival slow dry permanent ink and to stamp the leaves I used Strawberry Slush and Blushing bride inks.

I applied straight away Clear Stampin Emboss Powder before the ink dried to protect the images and then I sewed all the pieces together.

With a brush I applied clear ink on the images and I applied a second coat of Iridescent Ice Stampin Emboss Powder on both coin purses just to add a little bit of sparkle.  

Please find the  list of materials available in my shop  at the bottom of this post. (Both black out and water based ink cannot be washed - dry clean only). To see how to get permanent results please see my next sewing projects.
