eCraft Sewing Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the SEWING BLOG HOP!

All of the fabulous designers on this hop are showing you a Sewing project in celebration to National Sewing Month using the Fabulous and versatile eCraft.

If you just arrived here from Erika's Blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog please start at the beginning over at Raven’s Blog. That way you will be able to see all of the amazing projects and you will have more ways to win.  After me, you will go to Faith's Blog :)

I'm "sew" excited to show you my sewing project!  Ta Daaa!!!
Don't you love those colors?!  And I want this shirt in my size stat!
Alright, let's get down to it and show you how to make this bad boy ;)

Grab your supplies:
shirt
starch
fabrics of choice
heat n' bond
eCraft :)



So I picked out my fabrics from this Charm Pack.  What a lovely group of prints!  It was so hard to decide what 4 to use but I finally narrowed it down.

 Start with spraying your fabric with starch to stiffen it up.

 Once it's been absorbed in the fabrics, iron them dry.

Next cut out heat n' bond to cover the wrong sides of the fabric.  Make sure the bumpy glue side is touching the wrong side of the fabric.

Iron those on and let cool.

Once the fabric is ready to go, prepare the eCraft :)  Load up the fabric, putting on 0 tab settings and choose your design.  Here's a video to show you how it went :)

Once I cut out all my letters, I arranged them on my shirt.  I took off the paper backing as well. Take your iron and iron those letters on!  Press firmly and hold, covering the whole shape to make sure it bonds on! 

Here are the "negatives" from cutting.  Look how great the eCraft did!

Next I secured the letters by sewing them on the shirt.

All sewed up!


And here's the happy model, excited to wear this to school next week!!
