Personalizing Fabric

ScanNCut Specialist Julie Fei-Fan Balzer talks about how she love decorate fabric pieces with stencils made with her ScanNCut DX.

I love to create personalized fabric!  My favorite method is gelatin printing.  I used a Tattered Lace design to create a stencil to decorate my fabric.  The Tattered Lace design is the flowered portion of this fabric:

I combined that fabric with some other hand printed fabric to create this kind of crazy and cool quilt:

Each of the little pieces that you see was cut with the ScanNCut.  I simply created my pattern pieces in CanvasWorkspace and loaded my fabric into the machine.  It was quick and so easy!

For the back of the quilt I used a remnant of fabric my Mother gave me. 

When I was a little girl she made the kitchen curtains from this fabric (hand sewn because she didn’t own a sewing machine).  I love the sentimentality of including this fabric on the back of this little mini quilt!

I love that I was able to use my ScanNCut to both print the fabric for the quilt AND to cut the appliqué pieces for the quilt!  How cool is that?!
