It is important to use a strong adhesive when creating home décor.  Super Tape is a fantastic choice!  Use Super Tape in place of regular paper-to-paper adhesive for shadowboxes.

For non-paper memorabilia, like the silk flowers and ballet slippers, Jumbo Zots will provide a strong, lasting hold.

Depth will add a lot of visual appeal in a shadowbox.  Use 3D Foam Squares to pop out die cut accents.

Hand-stitched embroidery is a longtime passion of mine, and my Pinterest boards are full of sweet stitching and sewing projects that I want to give a try. Lately, I’ve been really inspired by Rebecca Sower’s amazing mixed-media fabric work, like this gorgeous journal cover.

I pulled lots of elements from Rebecca’s piece into my project, including the color palette of neutrals mixed with bits of red and black, the layers of fabric, lace, ribbons, and buttons. I had so much fun putting this pillow together, and thanks to the help of some time saving tips from Therm O Web’s Spray n’ Bond Adhesives, it was really easy, too.

AudreyPettitThermOWebSnowmanPillow2

To get started, die cut a mitten from linen fabric. Set the mitten aside for another project, because for this pillow, we are going to be focusing on the negative shape instead. Spray the back side of the fabric with Therm O Web Spray n’ Bond Fusible Adhesive and layer onto a larger piece of fabric. The Fusible Adhesive eliminates the need to pin the fabric in place, which is a real time saver.

Machine stitch around the outline of the mitten, and around the edge using black thread. I loved the multiple stitch lines that is so prominent in Rebecca’s work, so I went around my shape twice.

AudreyPettitThermOWebSnowmanPillowTut1

Add random embroidery stitches around the outline of the mitten. Mix it up and just have fun!

Stamp snowmen, scarf, and heart images onto the center of the mitten. Using the stamped images as a guide, embroider the outlines of the snowmen and scarves. Satin stitch the heart.

Water color the scarves using a red ink pad and a wet paintbrush. Then paint the snowmen with Gesso. Dry brush more Gesso randomly over the entire piece.

AudreyPettitThermOWebSnowmanPillowTut2

Stamp sentiment onto a thin strip of fabric and hand-stitch with black floss. Apply Fabric Fuse Tape to the back of the strip, peel off the liner, and adhere across the bottom.

AudreyPettitThermOWebSnowmanPillowTut3

Lightly lift sentiment strip and tuck lace trim under the bottom edge. Add a few hand-stitches for decoration. Using Fabric Fuse Tape, adhere trims across the top of the mitten.

Spray the back of the fabric with Fusible Adhesive and adhere onto a larger piece of fabric. Machine stitch the edges. Dry brush with additional Gesso.

AudreyPettitThermOWebSnowmanPillowTut4

Cut a second piece of fabric the same size as the layered front. Placing right sides together, machine stitch the pillow closed, leaving a small opening. Turn the pillow right side out, fill with polyfill fiber and slip stitch the pillow closed.

Adhere buttons with Zots Medium Clear Adhesive Dots. Tie a bow from shabby seam binding. Adhere onto pillow using Zots, along with another button tied with hemp cord.


For Pinterest Inspiration week, I was killing some time on Pinterest looking for inspiration for baby gifts.  I know of many babies who are about to be born and will be needing cute little gifts.  I was drawn to the useful gifts and settled on bibs.

I have to say that I was very eager to play with the Thermoweb Iron-On Vinyl!  There are so many possibilities and I intend to explore all of them but, for today, I’m sticking with the laminate baby bibs.  As a mother of three children, I have grown to really appreciate the importance of a good bib.  I like one that stays on, has lots of coverage, is easily wipeable, and has a pocket to catch the inevitable.  This bib has all of those things!

Supplies:

Two coordinating fat quarters
60″ half inch bias tape
Thermoweb Iron-On Vinyl
snap fastener kit
Teflon presser foot

Thank you to Blend Fabrics for sponsoring the fabrics used in my bibs.  The bibs in the main picture are made from Timber and Leaf by Sarah Watts.

Begin by printing out your pattern pieces.  The pdf file can be downloaded here.

Apply the vinyl following the directions on the packaging.  Because you don’t want pinholes in your laminated fabric, I suggest tracing your pattern pieces onto the paper backing which will cling to the laminate while you cut.

Do the same with the pocket pattern piece, using your contrasting print.

Next, cut your pieces and pull off the protective sheet to reveal your laminated fabric pieces.

Fold your bib pocket along the fold line (Remember not to iron directly onto the laminate, use that protective paper!).  Using a Teflon presser foot or an ultra glide foot, top stitch along the upper edge of the pocket. I used two rows of stitching for a more professional look but it isn’t necessary.

Stay stitch the pocket in place along the very edge.

Next, prepare approximately 60″ of half inch binding by folding it in half and ironing it.  You can use a Clover Bias Tape Maker in the 1/2″ size to make your own coordinating bias tape.  Begin applying the binding at the upper left neck edge as shown in the picture above.  Carefully work your way around the bib.

Finish off your bib by adding a snap using a Dritz snap fastener kit in the 7/16″ size.  This bib is made with Bugs by Jone Hallmark, perfect for a little boy.

For a fancier bib, you can use a pearl snap.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and won’t be scared to try your own iron-on laminate project!  It ironed on easily and yielded a really professional looking product.

 

Don’t forget…you can shop for all the Therm O Web and HeatnBond products used today right from our own website! It’s safe, secure and fast too!

Pinterest Inspiration Week

There are so many great things to look at on Pinterest that I’ll often pop over there for “just a minute”, only to find out that half an hour has gone by. Here in Boston we have had our fill of winter. Between the blizzard two weekends ago and another storm this past weekend, it seems like maybe old Mr. Groundhog got it wrong after all. When I went to Pinterest in search of my inspiration for this project, I was looking for something to take my mind off of winter. Here is what I came up with:
Pinterest Inspired Pillow

Pinterest source and original source

and here is the project – a beach themed breakfast tray.

BeachTray1

Start with an unfinished wood tray from the craft store then sand, paint, and adhere a collage of patterned papers (SuperStik Glue Stick and a Sticky Tape Runner work well for this). Then dry brush white paint over the whole thing. What really sets this tray apart is the jute wrapped handles.

BeachTray2

Sticky Lines is the perfect adhesive for this – it works like hot glue only without the mess!

BeachTray3

Cut a piece of Sticky Lines adhesive to the length of the top edge of the handle, peel off one side of the liner,

BeachTray4

and adhere. Keep the top of the liner in place until you have attached the bottom piece.

BeachTray5

Cut another piece and adhere to the underside of the handle.

BeachTray6

Adhere one end of a length of jute to the bottom edge of the handle. Inexpensive garden twine works well for this.

BeachTray7

Start wrapping…

BeachTray8

it really doesn’t take too long, but go slowly so that there are no gaps in the jute.

BeachTray9

When you get to the end, you might need to add a small sliver of adhesive to the end of the jute to keep it in place. I also used fine tipped scissors to trim the fuzzy ends of the twine that were sticking out – this made the handle smoother and nicer to hold.

BeachTray10

Happy Valentine’s Day from Therm O Web!

It’s Valentine’s Day!

The perfect day to show those your love just how much they mean to you! (although you can do this all year round!)

Designers Audrey Pettit and Rebecca Keppel have two projects that would be beautiful to have out any day of the year!

AudreyTOWNo.14Heart2

No. 14 Heart Ornament by Audrey Pettit

Supplies:

Therm O Web Fabric Fuse Tape
Therm O Web Spray n’ Bond Fusible Adhesive
Therm O Web Zots Singles Large Clear Adhesive Dots
Stamps: Stampin’Up
Floss: DMC
Ink: SEI
Paint: Delta
Beaded Heart: Jolees
Other: Muslin Fabric, Lace, Button, Thread, Hemp, Polyfill Fiber

I love to make handmade home decor pieces for the holidays. These little pillow hearts are super fun to create and make a great little gift or accent in your home. And with a few time-saving tricks thanks to the help of Therm O Web’s line of fusible adhesives, you can make a lot of these cuties in very little time. Bonus!

AudreyTOWNo.14HeartTut1

To get started, hand cut or die cut three hearts from muslin fabric. They can be any size or shape you wish. My heart is about 3″ x 4″. If you are hand-cutting, make sure that all three of your hearts are identical. For mine, I free-hand cut my first heart, and then used it as a template for the additional two hearts.

Cut one of the fabric hearts randomly across into three separate pieces, as shown above. Now have fun embellishing the pieces with stamped images. I used some graphic number stamps and line border stamps. Using the cut edges as guides can help keep your stamping straight, or just go crazy. This is the messy, artsy part, so have FUN!

AudreyTOWNo.14HeartTut2

When you are done embellishing, turn your cut fabric pieces over and apply Therm O Web Fabric Fuse tape to the edges. Adhere lace trim.

Now take your second muslin heart and spray it with Therm O Web Spray n’ Bond Fusible Adhesive. Adhere your embellished cut pieces on top of the second heart to create one whole heart. Using Therm O Web’s fusible adhesives completely eliminates the need to pin each piece, which is a great time-saving tip!

Continue to embellish with hand-stitching along the “seams”. Dry brush white paint over the heart and stitch a large button to the top corner. Using a Large Zots Singles Clear Adhesive Dot, apply a beaded heart charm to the center of the button.

AudreyTOWNo.14Heart3

Lay finished heart onto the third and last heart cut out. Machine stitch around the edges, leaving enough of an opening to fill with Polyfill stuffing before stitching all the way closed. I left my thread ends long for a different decorative touch. Tie a simple loop hanger out of hemp string and stitch to the top of the heart.


After the let down of taking down Christmas decorations, it is nice to have a reason to decorate again–enter Valentine’s Day decor! Making a pretty altered frame for Valentine’s Day is easy with Therm O Web adhesives.

Love Frame by Rebecca Keppel

Supplies:

Therm O Web Memory Runner
Therm O Web iCraft Sheets
Frame
Patterned Papers

Start with an empty frame, some fun patterned paper a Therm O Web Memory Runner and Therm O Web i Craft Sheets.

rk TOW valentine1

Cover the frame backing with patterned paper. Cut out a heart shape from the iCraft adhesive using a Cameo or other die cut machine.

rk TOW valentine2

Peel one side of the iCraft sheet off and adhere heart to the paper covered frame back. Remove the protective top of the iCraft sheet and adhere buttons in the heart pattern. Once the heart is full of buttons, pour fine glitter over the entire area to fill small cracks that are too tiny to insert buttons into.

rk TOW valentine3

Using an iCraft dot and tulle, make a rolled flower by twisting and adhering the tulle onto the iCraft dot. Spray lightly with Therm O Web Glitter Dust.

rk TOW valentine5

Peel off the protective backing and adhere to the frame. A light spray of Glitter Dust adds a slight glittery touch and the adhesive included in the Glitter Dust helps keep the flower’s shape.

rk TOW valentine6

The die cut iCraft sheets make this project quicker and easier than ever!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Deliver Valentines In Style with Therm O Web

We’re just one week away from the sweetest holiday…Valentine’s Day!

Today Designer Melissa Bullock with a little help from her girls shows how you can deliver those Valentine’s in style!

Doll Mailbox 2013-02-06 017r

This idea came from an American Girl magazine.  Once my girls saw it they had to make one.  We just created it with Therm O Web!  And of course we had to make little doll-sized envelopes.

Therm O Web Supplies:

Other Supplies:

  • Washi tape
  • Small mailbox
  • Candlestick between 5″ – 8″ tall
  • Ribbon
  • Cardstock

First cover the mailbox with strips of ribbon and washi tape.  Then out of iCraft Adhesive sheets, cut two large hearts for the mailbox end and 7 smaller hearts for the flag and mailbox body.  Peel off one layer of the iCraft backing, stick hearts to the mailbox.  ICraft Adhesive is so versatile it will stick to uneven textures, for example a seam between bulky ribbon and thin washi tape!  Peel off the remaining iCraft Adhesive backing and sprinkle iCraft hearts with glitter.  Use an old paintbrush to brush off excess glitter.  Finally, attach the mailbox to a candlestick with Jumbo Zots.

Kiss of the Sun Decorative Pillow by Audrey Pettit

Supplies:
Therm O Web HeatnBond Fusible Fleece
Therm O Web SpraynBond™ Basting Adhesive
Muslin and Wool Fabric
DMC Embroidery Floss
Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Kiss of the Sun Rubber Stamp
Kraft Outlet Cardstock
Stampin’Up Basic Brown Ink
Papertrey Ink Simply Chartreuse Topnotch Twill Tape (3/8-inch)
Pinking Shears
Safety Pin
Used Coffee Grounds
Polyfill Stuffing

5_8_08 1499

Directions:

1. Cut muslin fabric to 4.5″ x 8″. Soak fabric in used coffee grounds and water to give fabric a stained and aged appearance. Allow muslin to dry completely.
*Note that the longer the fabric soaks in the grounds, the darker the staining will appear.

2. Draw or transfer embroidery pattern onto the muslin. For the project shown, the basket outline and flower stems were lightly hand-drawn with pencil as a general stitching guide. Embroider pattern as follows:
Basket Outline and Flower Stems: Outline Stitch
Basket Weave and Leaves: Satin Stitch
Flowers: French Knots, Satin Stitch, and Lazy Daisies

P1000507

3. Lay fusible fleece and stitched muslin out on a large surface. Fold back one half of the muslin fabric and spray SpraynBond™ Basting Adhesive evenly on the back of the fabric and smooth it out onto the fleece (reposition as needed to avoid any wrinkles or bumps). Repeat with the other side.

4. Trim off any extra fleece.

5. Cut backing fabric to size. With right sides facing, machine stitch layers together using a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving an opening on the bottom side. Flip fabric so that the right sides are out, stuff with polyfill stuffing, and stitch pillow closed using a slip stitch.

6. Stamp verse onto kraft cardstock with brown ink. Trim into a small tag. Cut decorative edge on bottom of the tag using pinking shears. Tie twill ribbon into a bow. Pin bow and tag to pillow.

Winter Votive Vase from Therm O Web

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 1

Winter Votive Vases by Patti Milazzo

I embellished an inexpensive glass vase and votive candle holder with Therm O Web’s Supertape, iCraft Adhesive Sheets and Glitter Dust to add glitter and sparkle to this wintry wedding décor.
Therm O Web Supplies:

Therm O Web Supertape 1/8”

Therm O Web Zots – Bling

Therm O Web Zots – Small

Therm O Web Zots – Medium

Therm O Web Zots – 3D

Therm O Web Glitter Dust – Silver and Iridescent

Therm O Web iCraft Adhesive Sheet

Other Supplies:
Sizzix Snowflake Die

Glass vase and glass votive candle holder (craft store – less than $2 for both)

Doodlebug Design Sugar Coated Metallic Aluminum Glitter (loose glitter)

Iridescent Fine Glitter by Creative Beginnings

Gems, ribbon and tag or accent to embellish

Artificial decorative snow (craft or home improvement store)
Instructions:

  1. Lightly spray the glass vase and votive with Silver Glitter Dust and let dry.
  2. To add iridescent sparkle to the snow, place fake decorative snow in a discarded cardboard box (shirt box) and lightly spray, then fluff with a plastic fork and let dry.
  3. In the meantime, apply 1/8” Supertape around top or top edge of glass containers.  If applying around a circular shape, as shown with the votive, press, reposition and smooth out the tape as needed.  Don’t worry about minor imperfections or bumps as they will not show once the glitter is applied.

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 2

  1. Remove the tape and apply loose glitter.  Sprinkle on or apply and press with a dry paint brush.  Use your finger to smooth it over and then use the paint brush to lightly brush away any excess.
  2. Next, diecut (or punch) snowflakes from iCraft Adhesive Sheets.  Carefully peel away the backing and apply to side of vase.  3 snowflakes were applied to this vase.  Press firmly to ensure that the adhesive is secure, then remove the top protective layer and apply loose glitter.

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 3

  1. Add snow to the vase and insert votive holder and candle.
  2. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the vase, use a Small and Medium Zots to secure it hold the ribbon in place.  Tie a separate bow and again use a Zot to adhere it to the ribbon.  Trim tails as needed.

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 4

  1. Use Bling Zots to adhere gems inside snowflakes
  2. Create a tag from embossed cardstock.  Punch larger heart from light pink cardstock and apply to tag with 3D Zot.  Add letter stickers below – “I Do”

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 5

  1. Apply iCraft Adhesive Sheet to cardstock and punch out small heart.  Peel away protective layer and apply pink glitter.  Use a Zot to apply to the larger heart to complete the project.
