T is for Transfer
Topic: A-Z round 1

I bought myself a little tool that heats up and has different attachments for the hot end. One of these is a disk for making transfers.

So I used a printer to print out the antique pattern envelope in mirror image and then used a photocopier to make a fresh toner print. When the print is placed face down and the little heat tool applied to the back the toner transfers to the cardstock. Cool! I cut it out with pinking shears for the 'sewing theme.'

I folded a cardstock and ran it through the Xyron to apply adhesive to the front. Then I applied torn bits of tissue dress pattern to cover the surface.  After staining both pieces with Ranger discressing ink pads ('old paper' for the small piece and 'tea dye' for the tissue covered piece.)

I used my sewing machine to stitch the transfer piece to the card and pulled all loose ends to the front to tie a knot.
