Whiff Of Joy Hand-Stitch Tutorial

Hey everyone, how are you all this Monday morning? Hope you all had a good weekend.

I have a card that I’ve made for the Whiff Of Joy Tutorials And Inspiration Blog today. Each of the design team and guest design team members have been writing tutorials and today is my turn.

So I thought I would do a tutorial for these swirls. You can see how to make them yourself over at the Whiff Of Joy Tutorials and Inspiration blog – I hope you like 🙂

The image is the Whiff Of Joy Santa Reading List stamp and I’ve coloured him with my Prismacolor pencils and Sansodor.

I’ve used pearlescent glue on his beard and fluffy stuff fluid on his hat and coat trim. I was going to fluff-it up but I decided I actually liked the way it looked unfluffed!

The paper is some of my own design distressed gingham papers and the fabric? Well let’s just say that my boyfriend wont want to wear that work shirt any more – tee hee!

Have a lovely shirt re-purposing day!
