Well, I've made 4 actually - but Robot Child #1 took the first one I made. :)
|Laminated Crayon Wallets|
|Elephants on Parade|
|Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty|
I figured out doing these in assembly line fashion, works best. Laminating fabric is really not that hard...shocking I know. Once I figured out how to do it, I was surprised at how easy it is. It's just time consuming is all. So, I cut out all my pieces for the wallets I am going to make, then cut out my iron on vinyl. For all the inner pieces, I start the laminating process for each one. Then I set them aside until all the pieces are laminated. Then I resume putting them together. For me, this works and I get less frustrated by how long it is taking!
You can find iron-on vinyl by Heat Bond at Walmart or Hobby Lobby. JoAnn's says they have it online, but when I went to my local store, they didn't know what I was talking about, and didn't have any. Must be an online thing only - or my JoAnn's is just lame. ;) The Internet also says you can buy it in a package, wrapped up for 2 yards. I haven't been able to find that either - just by the bolt. I eventually got tired of searching for it, so I just bought the rest of the bolt my Walmart had and called it a day. Hopefully they order more - cuz I'm sure I will need some more in the future. ;)
These are fun to make and I am loving all the cute fabric combinations I've been finding. I bought another armful of fat quarters at my local quilt shop. They need some shopping carts or baskets, cuz really, it's hard carrying around a ton of fabric. Maybe I just need to enlist a strong man I know to carry all my fabric for me. Yah-that will never happen. ;)
Edited to add: I'll be doing a tutorial on how to make laminated fabric coming up shortly. Stay tuned!!
