I haven't posted any projects for a bit, but I have been stitching!

Here is a new bib for my great-niece Kira.  It's my first attempt at crayon tinting and I'm please with how it turned out:





This is an Urban Threads design.  Comments and critiques welcome.  Enjoy!

Check out the 'Tinting with Crayons' thread in the discussion/questions board, there's tutorials and everything.  I saw it when I joined this past winter and went, "Ooh, gotta try this technique"!

I did this one this way because I was afraid that if I satin-stitched all those colors on the lolly, it wouldn't balance out against the robot.

THanks for the compliments, gang!  Grin

You actually color the cloth with crayons...which brings out your inner six-year old and is actually quite alot of fun!  Next you iron the piece between pieces of brown paper bag to lift the wax.   Then you wash it to get it soft again (I washed it by itself on a cold hand wash cycle with shampoo). 

A word of caution:

Your iron needs to be as hot as possible, but keep checking the fabric to make sure it's not scorching. I wasn't careful with another project I'm working on, and I had to treat the fabric several times to get the scorch marks out!
