It's a Friday night and I am hare raisin' and ribbon rousin'. Yes, I am just now posting it. I am quick to start a project and slow to finish. In other words I am both the tortoise and the hare!
The Frozen Charlottes look over the torn cotton ribbons and approve of what they see.
I love this image of a girl dressed in her Easter finery with this giant Easter egg. It is every child's dream - a giant egg filled with surprises. The image is from The Graphic Fairy along with the hare silhouette used below. Thank you, Karen!
I printed the image in REVERSE onto transfer paper. You will notice I carefully cut out each image with a pair of scissors with an old photo edge.
It didn't matter because I forgot to add a background color before I printed the images. Silly, silly hare!
I used a torn calico ribbon with a sepia-toned floral print.
Ironed on the transfer. You need a hard surface for this.
Some were printed with the girl, some with the girl and the hare silhouettes, and some with only the hares.
To use most of the transfer paper, I first printed out all the images for this project and my hare towels. See the towels here!
I cut the images and taped them on a piece of paper trying to use most of the surface.
Of course, that meant cutting out over a hundred little hares, big frames, small frames, and last, but not least, little Easter girls.
I do have more leftovers to use.
I like that the background of the fabric is seen through the image of Easter girl.
Finished at last with this group. And it is only 1:30 AM ! I'll finish the rest tomorrow. This tortoise needs some sleep.
Mr. Chick surveys the pink and turquoise calico ribbons with hopping hares.
Each ribbon is two yards long and about two inches wide.
The Frozen Charlottes are all agog with excitement as the final product is revealed.
Each ribbon was wrapped around a vintage Easter postcard and secured with a corsage pin.
So what would someone do with this ribbon?
Well, the obvious is wrap a gift.
You could tie it on your Easter bonnet.
It is pretty just sitting around as basket filler.
As you can see eleven out of eleven Frozen Charlottes agree!
