Sweet Crazy Love Blog Hop....

Hi all! Here we go with our very first Blog Hop for 2012! I've seen the projects and I'm telling you these are all "over the top" GORGEOUS!

If you're starting the Blog Hop at my blog you need to go back to the beginning of the Hop, because you don't want to miss a single stop on this Hop. You can pick up the order at Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge blog. If you've arrived here from Patti Jo's blog you're right on the money! From here you'll hop on over to the incredibly talented Janiel's blog. Put on your sunglasses gals, this hop is going to DAZZLE you and inspire you to try new techniques and projects...

I have made this project because I was inspired by a tutorial I saw earlier this week on Saturated Canary challenge blog. It was about how to print digital images and heat setting them on fabric, and I decided I could stamp an image on the fabric and color it using their techniques.

Many thanks to Paola, my BFF in South Africa for walking me through the process on Skype.

I'm pleased with the way it turned out. Actually I've made two of them, but this particular one is with the Sweet Crazy Love image #3084 Wild Thing Tilda. Diana is out of stock on this image right now (no wonder!) but she has a fabulous collection of this new collection in both the regular and Mini sizes. This collection is truly adorable and each image can be used for a number of different occasions. Many images are on sale over at the Magnolia-licious shop so please go and visit Diana and get your savings immediately!

So here's my project...I have made a Onsie. I stamped the image with Memento Ink and heat set it. Then I used my Copics to color in the image. When I was finished I heat set the image and headed to my sewing machine to add some lace to the neckline and three little pink gingham bows. In this first picture I have dressed my baby doll with the Onsie and used a wee teddy and small blanket for props....



Here is a closer look at the Onsie...the size is a little big for my 'baby', so I had to pull the fabric to the back. I will be making another Onsie identical to this one as these will be going to my friend who is expecting twin girls any day now!



Here's a very close look at how she colored up...



This photo shows the Onsie off the baby. You get a better view of the bows I sewed onto the sleeves from this one...



I always include a photo of my project on an angle. This is as close to an angle as the camera and lighting would allow...



I hope you've enjoyed visiting my blog on your hop today! Don't forget to head on over to Janiel's blog to see her stunning project!

Blessings and hugs...
Barb
