Things I Love....

Two things I love....
Disney and Stampin' Up!

So I decided I'd try out a small project combining them both to see how I liked it and.....


I LOVE IT!

This is a small Disney Autograph Quilt made with the NEW "Springtime Vintage" Fabric and matching buttons from Stampin' Up's Occasions Mini Catalog.  I know it's no surprise to hear that we've been to Disney a lot....  We've done lots of different "takes" on collecting character autographs....books....hats....colored cardstock for scrapbooking..... etc.
So one year I decided that I'd take pre-cut quilt blocks and a fabric marker and have the characters sign them.  I can't tell you how many compliments we got from other guests, cast members and even the characters themselves.  Once I had them all at home, I put them on my light table and made a template of each one on plain white paper to keep.  I've used them several times to make gifts for some of our friend's children.  It's such a cool gift to give and I love making them.  So I decided to try a small one and see how it would turn out.  I picked some of my favorite characters and I smile just looking at it.


The colors are so cheerful and the fabrics remind me of the "shabby chic" style.


So now I have a little keepsake just for me combining two of the things I love.....

Have a magical day!

  2. How did you get the characters to sign fabric? Seems like it'd be flimsy?

  3. They didn't. I took the autographs and put them on a light table and traced them onto the fabric squares. Voila ! It's great because I can use them on multiple projects.

  4. I just got back from Disney. I used 6 inch blocks and ironed freezer paper to the back of them. Clipped them onto a clipboard for the characters to sign with a fabric marker. Now just have to figure out how I want to quilt it up.

  6. This is a great idea! Another way to do this is to have them sign a plain piece of paper, scan it, and then print the image onto iron-on transfer paper. That would work too! Love this! Pinning.
