Make This: Fabric Pendants with Rubber Stamps and Mod Podge

Got Fabric Scraps and Mod Podge?

We are so excited to share this project with you!  We always have tons of little scrap fabrics and of course we have a gazillion rubber stamps so we tried to design a project that would blend the two.

After experimenting and lots of trial and error, we created Fabric Stamped Pendants!  They are so addicting to make!  We used fabric Mod Podge for the glue and sealer and top coated them with Dimensional Magic.  The Dimensional Magic gives the pendant the hard gloss finish.

Materials:
Rubber stamp (we used a key image)
Scrap Fabric (light color)
Fabric Ink Pad – permanent
Non-Stick Scissors
Eyelet and Setter
Gem Glue
Rhinestones
Chain Chain Chain: chain, jumprings and clasp
Scrap Ribbon

Instructions

Measure the height and width of your stamped image.  Add 1” to the height measurement.  Double the width and add 1” to the measurement.  Cut a piece of fabric to this size.

Working on one edge, rubberstamp your image to the fabric.  Allow to dry 4 hours or heat set with an iron.

Apply a very thin coat of fabric Mod Podge to the back of the fabric.  Fold the fabric over so the edges meet. Let dry for 4 hours. Very Important!

Coat the front and back of the fabric with a thin coat of Mod Podge. Let dry for 4 hours.

Cut around your stamped image, leaving a small border.

Add an eyelet to the top center.

Add a even layer of Dimensional Magic to the top of the stamped image. Let dry 5 hours in a non-drafty location.

Glue gems to the top of the design.

Cut a length of chain to fit your neck.  Using pliers attach a clasp to each end of the chain with jump-rings.  Thread a jump-ring through the eyelet and attach to the center of the chain.  Add more jump-rings to create a longer dangle pendant.  Add a bow to the top of the pendant.

Sewing Tutorial: Stitch a Fabric Memory Matching Game

Sewing Tutorial: Stitch a Fabric Memory Matching Game
This quick and easy project is perfect for using up little scraps of fabric.  Kids will love playing with and when it gets dirty you can just toss the squares into the wash.
 Look for prints that kids will love.  For me, that means raiding my fabric bins.
You will also need a fabric for the backs.
You will need:
backing fabric
(i used birch trees – this will be the same for each square)
fun bold prints
 
cotton batting
sewing supplies
You will need to make two matching squares per print.
You can make as many pairs of squares as you wish.
For each set of matching squares:
Cut two 5″x5″ squares of a matching print, a background print and cotton batting.
Position one backing fabric square and one matching print right-sides together.  Place onto of the cotton batting square and pin around the edges.
Sew around the edges.  Make sure you leave a small opening for turning.
Clip the corners to remove bulk.
Turn right-side out and top-stitch around the outer edge.  Repeat for all the remaining squares.
I also stitched up a little zipper bag to hold all the squares.
