This has been such a fun blog hop to follow. I have enjoyed the creative ideas that my fellow blog hoppers have come up with so far. =)
I want to begin with a huge thank you to Madame Samm for hosting these fun blog hops and a great big salute to Linda @ Buzzing and Bumbling for being our cheerleader and organizer. Great job, ladies...
I had a little trouble with my project. I used these fabric sheets and followed the directions to make the ink color-fast.
It didn't work for me. After I washed my project (I hand washed it carefully) the ink smudged on all my words! Argh!!
So I took the words out. Oh, yes I did...And it took a long time!
I made the new words by ironing fabric on freezer paper and running it through the printer. The words faded some when I hand washed it, but at least it isn't smeared.
The words I chose are from Galatians 5:22, which are the fruits of the Holy Spirit. I am very much a work in progress on all of them. Some more than others, like self control and patience. *ahem* Having them where I can see them all day has helped me to meditate on them and think about how I can be more kind to those around me, or use a more gentle tone when talking to my family when I am frustrated.
I would love to know if anyone has used these fabric sheets for a project and if they had any tips on how I can use the ones I have left successfully. I hesitate to use them at all, at this point.
Make sure you go see what these lovely ladies made for today's blog hop and be inspired!
