Finished! Let It Snow Themed Canvas Tag
Today I finished up my SNOW mixed media canvas tag and I absolutely love how it turned out, even if I am out of practice with my free motion stitching.. HA!
To complete the theme on this tag I fused some fabric letters to the front. The letters were cut using my Brother ScanNCut 225DX cutting machine. I love using this machine especially since there is no WAY I can cut this nicely myself.
When fusing onto the tag, because I have embossed snowflakes, I had to be very careful or it would re-melt the embossed image. I lowered the temp on my iron, covered the tag with a pressing cloth, and just very lightly ironed. The fusible I used is Steam A Seam II Lite. This fusible lets me stick my applique pieces where I want them, and then they wont move. I can also get away with light ironing and they will still be stuck.
Next I wrote 'Let it' onto the tag using a heat erase pen, and free motion stitched over it. By writing it with this heat erase pen (Frixion) I was able to trace the writing with my free motion stitching, and then the pen erased with heat when I fused the backing fabric on.
I then free motion stitched around the letters. Again, ignore my wobbly lines!
After the free motion stitching was done I fused backing fabric on, stitched around the edges, and my tag was ready for the next step.
An eyelet and gorgeous yarns and trims complete the look; my Let It Snow tag is complete!
I almost forgot to show you the back!
