*****Baby Cap Gift Holder - variation on a theme
In a previous post, I made a "cap" with dangling mittens. (Original cap tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.com) A friend noted that it could easily be changed to a baby version if I changed the mittens to booties. Having a bit of muslin left over from a previous card challenge project I wondered how it would look if I took Lana's technique ( see below link) beyond flowers..... so, "variation on a theme" ! The booties (PSX) I stamped on the prepared muslin fabric, colored them with Prisma pencils and laboriously cut them out! The muslin cardstock cap takes its color and design following Lana's technique of spritzing the embossing folder with color (Tattered Angels here) which I then ran through my Cuttlebug. For the band across the cap, I cut out images from Nana's Nursery (paper), which I also used for "inside" the cap. A bit of leftover yarn was used to create the pom pom that tops the cap. Also used was a piece of lace ribbon by May Arts, and a bit of coordinating ribbon. The picture doesn't show, but I stamped a "to/from" image on the back of the booties. Won't this make a cute way of presenting a gift card to an expectant mother at a baby shower!
