Sew with Jennifer Tryon- Week 1

10/09/18

Hi sewing enthusiasts,

It’s Jennifer Tryon here with my first ever Crafter’s Companion Blog takeover! Check back every Wednesday for a special sewing blog post from yours truly. I’ll be making sacks full of exciting projects including, clutch bags, bunting and even a Gemini cover! I can’t wait to get started.

This week, we’re starting simple with this lovely napkin that has me ‘buzzing’ with excitement. Keep reading to see how I made it!

To get started, you will need:

Threaders Fabric Ink Pads
Threader’s Nature’s Garden Stamps Bee and Honeycomb
Napkin
Clear Stamping Block

I used a 20×20 napkin. I mounted my ez mount honeycomb stamp onto my clear
block. Then I dabbed the orange ink pad onto my stamp making sure to have an
even coat on the stamp.

Then I placed the stamp onto one corner of the fabric. I re-inked the stamp then very carefully tessellated the die to line up with the previously stamped image and restamped the napkin. I continued this 2 more times.

I cleaned the stamp and returned it to the stamp set.

I mounted my bee stamp onto the mounting block. I dabbed the black ink pad onto
the bee and placed him on my honeycomb. I repeated this 2 more times around my
honeycomb.

To add an extra accent I added a stamped bee to each corner.

To set the ink into the fabric I used a hot iron to iron over the ink so it does not
smear or will not wash out.

Thank you all for reading! Don’t forget to check back next week for takeover with me!

I hope that you have enjoyed this project? We’d love to see your makes! Please share with me on my Facebook page or tag me on Instagram (#cjennifertryoncc)
