Hello sunshine! How are you my lovelies?
I've been very happy with the sunny weather the past few days. And I found a craft that matched the blossoming season.
I bought this at the craft store in the middle of winter (you're right, I was longing for warm weather).
It's a package filled with fabric die-cuts meant for fabric-to-fabric decoupage. I'm using the flowers to dress this up:
A blah-looking case for sunglasses.
Before beginning the craft, wash this with soap and water to remove fabric sizing. It's best to avoid using fabric softener or a dryer sheet so that the die-cuts will adhere well. You can use an iron to remove any wrinkles.
Once the surface was ready, I chose a few flowers and experimented on where to position them.
It's recommended to use a fabric-to-fabric decoupage glue but I didn't have that on hand. Instead, I used a permanent fabric glue.
Put a few drops of glue at the back of each die-cut. I used my fingers to spread the glue, but a paintbrush can be used, too.
Press the die-cut onto the chosen area and smooth out with your fingers. I added more glue on the top and edges of each die-cut for a firmer grip. I let this dry for at least an hour.
I let this dry again, using a small bottle to prop up the fabric case. This allows both sides to dry without any side sticking on a surface.
And it's useful for eyeglasses, too.
Have a great week ahead!
