Design your own Holiday Fabric with Tulip!

I love making clothes for my daughter otr of jersey knit.  But, a lot of times it is hard to find a cute pattern on a jersey knit.  For Christmas I wanted to make a  holiday dress for my 2 year old daughter that was cute and comfy... jersey knit! But I could not find the pattern that I wanted!   Tulip to the rescue! Using Tulip Shimmer Sheets and Tulip Shimmer Paints I was able to create my own design for my jersey knit to make this cute holiday dress! Hooray!!


I am going to show you 3 ways to create your own fabric designs! 

I got a box of awesomeness from Tulip with TONS supplies to create amazing projects! 


Fabric # 1
Supplies needed:
Tulip Fabric Spray Glitter
White Fabric

I wrinkled the fabric to make it a more tie-died look and then I sprayed it with the Fabric spray glitter. 
First I used the red and then let dry.
Then I wrinkled it differently and sprayed it with the silver glitter.  
This is a very subtle effect... But I do like how it sparkles now!  



Fabric # 2
Supplies:
Tulip Fabric glue
Tulip Fabric glitter
Stencil
Dabber or foam brush
Fabric
Tray (to catch the glitter)

Place fabric on tray and place your stencil in place and dab the glue on the stencil.
Remove the stencil and sprinkle the glitter over the glue
Shake off the excess glitter 
Repeat in what ever patter you want.
Tip- less glue is better then more.  it got really blotchy when I used too much glue.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out... totally worth all the glitter mess! 


Fabric # 3
Supplies:
Tulip Glitter iron on transfer sheets
Iron
fabric

Cut out your desired shapes. 
 I used my silhouette to cut these snowflakes, the glitter sheets work with most die cutters!  But you don't need a die cutter to use them... you can cut out your shapes with a scissors or exacto knife too!
Place on your fabric in the patter you want. 
place a piece of fabric over and iron for 40 seconds.
 Test to see if it transferred- if not iron again. 

So shiny and pretty!   These glitter sheets would also be great to spruce up a t-shirt too! 

My daughter loved her dress!  When she put it on she said "Wook mom- it is SO shiny!"  and "I am a beautiful princess!" and then proceeded to do ballerina twirls for me! 

I made the dress using the Hoody-pattern from Lil' Blue Boo and I just added length and the ruffle on the bottom.  I love this pattern and use it all the time!

Here are some details of my pregnancy so far

  • I had horrible "morning" sickness (that lasted all day) for the first 16 weeks.  Yes I threw up A LOT!
  • I am carring the baby low. 
  • I don't know the heart rate... I have heard the heart beat I just forget to ask for the rate.  
  • I do get heart burn every once in a while.  
Get your vote on! :)
