So the other day I sat down to make some fabric stamps...no particular reason, just in the mood, maybe something for my #sugarplumswap
partner. Problem one, I have no yardage of white fabric. At all. How can that be??? I stumbled across half a package of white 5 inch charm squares, perfect! Second issue, I’m down to baby scraps of heat and bind after all the typewriter and phone pouches. But I find enough pieces to make some. I fussy cut to my heart’s content, get everything prepped and fused together. Problem three. No pinking shears. I cannot remember where they are, I vaguely remember using them for something so I know they are not their normal location, but old lady brain can’t remember where they would be. Also cannot find the rotary pinking blade either. Bummer. Project set aside until I can run to Joann’s and buy fusible and the pinking shears. But when I come back to the pile, I see adorable little piles of fabric pictures, and now I don’t want to do fabric stamps at all, I want to do fabric Polaroids! And oh my goodness are they cute scattered around on some Essex linen! I wanted it to look like you found a stack of vacation pictures and had tossed them on a table. I see soooo many possibilities for these, starting with some pouches I think! This sample will be a little mini quilt with the forgotten one on the back for a label. Might have to also write something on each picture like we used to do with real Polaroids too, but that might be too much...I will enjoy the day job today with this happy morning accomplishment!! .
