Design Team: Debi Tullier Week 6

Debi Tullier's Masterpiece 

We are super excited for today's tutorial! Debi Tullier is the best at working with fabric, and when she's not, she makes it look like she is! Today, Debi will show us how to make a useful recipe holder to put your kitchen cabinets to work! Here is her how-to:
My Square 1 Masterpiece project for this month is a hanging recipe card holder. So many times while preparing a recipe, I have actually misplaced my recipe. This will make my recipes safe as well as clean as well as easily viewed, while I get busy with preparing our favorite holiday recipes.

Supplies needed for this project:
(you can purchase this at any local fabric store)
Bias tape trim or ribbon to sew along the edges.
eCraft Pro Software
Leaf SVG's
Acrylic liquid ink
sewingmachine or fabric glue
jewerly wire
wire cutters

I cut my vinyl and quickly sewed my bias trim around the edge to make a pocket for my recipes. I love this simple project!

 I used ready made bias tape but you can use ribbon or just a strip of fabric. If you don't want to sew you can actually staple the vinyl on the edge and then glue the trim around  the sides and bottom. Next I selected various leaf svg files to cut on my Machine. I love my Purpleberry machine! You can purchase great leaf and other designs at Central new cutting files are added daily. They download to your eCraft Pro Software. 

I set the pressure at the lowest setting. The cap was left on. I used no tabs. and I used a vegetable cutting sheet for my image stablizer. 

I decided to paint my leaves with some acrylic inks to achieve the effect I desired. You can print out the colors you want on a printer or as I did. Square1 Masterpiece Fabric loves to be embellished with many mediums. This is what I used.

Speedball Super Pigmented ink and Windsor and Newton liquid Acrylic. I love the effects that can be achieved with these.

Once my leaves dried I decided to make them double sided so for stability I added a small wire to the inside.

I love the way my leaves turned out. I wish I made enough to put in an arrangement for my Holiday table!

My leaves had a real look to them. I really love Square1 Masterpiece Fabric.
You can see some of my detail in this shot.


Next I placed the leaves along the sides of my holder

I stitched my leaves on but you don't have to. Hot glue, Adhesive

I will get a lot of use from this fun project. I hope that enjoy my tutorials. Come back next Tuesday to see what I have posted. Please leave me some feedback and remember it is all about having fun!

 Thank you, Debi for this functional masterpiece! Don't you just love the details?! If you want to find out more about Debi, visit her blog here:
