Back in June, Kathy at Kate’s Place shared a vintage shopping cart she purchased at a porch sale for $3 and made the cutest burlap liner for it. You can read all about Kathy’s cute vintage shopping cart here. Since then, I had been on the look-out for one. Well wouldn’t you know it, I have been lucky enough to have found two in the last six weeks. I wasted no time on the first one I found and made a burlap liner for it.
I printed a graphic from The Graphic Fairy onto fabric and attached it to the front with twine.
This one I’m keeping for myself.
I’m using it to house some pillows right now.
But this recent find I will make a burlap liner and offer it for sale at my upcoming fall show.
I’ve had a few inquiries about printing on fabric. I have seen several different methods for printing on fabric but this one has worked for me every time. I use freezer paper. First, I cut my fabric and freezer paper the size of the printer paper which is 8 1/2 by 11. Next, I iron my fabric to get rid of all the wrinkles and then place the freezer paper on top of my fabric with the shiny side down. Then I run a dry iron on medium on top of the freezer paper. I keep checking to see if the freezer paper has adhered to the fabric and when it has you’re done. It’s ready for the printer. I hope I did okay in explaining how to do this….I’m not very good at tutorials!
As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Charlie and I are going to an estate sale on Saturday. Previews are showing a lot of antique items!
