Tilly's crafting day.
Tilly has been a crafter since her Mum gave her a roll of sticky tape aged 1.
Before she could walk she was out in my studio, pulling the fabric out of the drawers.
With her beloved sticky tape, she stuck everything to everything... on the TV, on the table on me..... she loved it and spent ages playing craft.
Aged 18 months she had her own box of fabric, pegs, pencils, paper and even scissors.
Al the children have their own craft box in the studio, they love it. But they love my rubbish bin the most.
I said to Tilly today.... "I better get Papa to empty the bin"....she said, "Oh no Bamma, leave it till Kodi comes over so we can play with it first"
Their Mothers love me.!!!!
Now she's at school we have little time to spend "crafting" but we did today.
The video is a bit crackly, somehow its camera noise, I need to investigate what the problem is, but it was so priceless I couldn't waste the footage.
I purchased a packet of Transfer artists paper from Spotlight, our local fabric warehouse... (a bit like Joannes) You can use it to transfer images to fabric, paper, wood, glass and canvas, so they say.
I want to experiment with it, but I thought it would be super to make T shirts with Tilly.
We were up early and went to Kmart to buy t shirts for $3. Of course white is best.
Tilly could have drawn directly on the paper.... it probably would have been better... but I the writing would need to be reversed so I decided to get her to draw it on paper and scan the image in and reverse it in the computer....
Then print it on the paper.
Tilly describes how to do it in her own way....
