Doodle Toy Bag Tutorial
Today we’re welcoming Stephanie from The Crafty Kitty to the Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! creative team! Stephanie has an amazing eye for incorporating her kids’ artwork into her projects. When I saw her tutorial for making fabric prints from your kids art, I knew I had to have her join us over here. Her first post for us is another fun way to collaborate with your kids, show off their art, and get them involved in making. I know you’ll love it! Here’s Stephanie:
Hi and hello! I am soooo excited (squeeee!!) and a little bit nervous to be sharing my first tutorial here on Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!Usually, you will find me hanging out over at The Crafty Kitty, sharing my latest eco-craft, play ideas or [vegan] recipes, or preparing orders for my online organic fabric store and haberdashery, Stitch Organics. In particular, at the moment, I am really interested in experimenting with natural dyes and sewing with my kids.
- about half a metre (depending on width) medium to heavyweight plain fabric
- about half a metre (depending on width) medium weight iron on interfacing
- heavy weight sew-in interfacing
- vinyl or scrap plastic wallet (optional)
- bias binding (if you aren’t making your own)
- fabric crayons/fabric markers
The first thing you want to do is to cut out your fabric and interfacing. You will need 4 pieces of plain fabric and interfacing 15″ (width) x 11 (height)”. Cut a 10″ (w) x 4″ (h) piece of the heavy weight sew-in interfacing and if you are going to have a window in your toy bag then also cut an 8″ (w) x 4″ (h) piece of vinyl or see through plastic scrap from a zippered document wallet. You also need to cut 2 strips of 22″ (w) x 2″, unless you are using pre-made bias tape.
