About Me

My photo
With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Drawings on a quilt by Bev

Bev searched and experimented for the best way to transfer drawings onto fabric. In the end, she lightly spray glued her fabric onto paper to make it flat and stiff and then put it straight through her computer printer which acts as a photocopier.

She made this quilt for her son, which she named the "Lots of Love" quilt.
She used a collection of drawings her son did as he was growing up. She wrote his age or year of school on the drawings to remember how old he was at the time of artistic creation.
(Sorry for poor quality photo!)

What a great idea! She warns to beware of clogging up a good photocopier. Try it on a home machine and test it for colour fastness before sewing it into your project.

What a lovely keepsake.
