    Question How do I make this?

    My son and daughter has made these out of one sheet of paper, but someone has made them out of two fabrics. ANY idea of how to go about making these? After some time the paper ones sag and look goofy. I would hate to have that happen if I make these for others.

    I'd love to hear your ideas. A quilt shop is offering a make and take class on these. Do you think they'd share the secret over the phone? I've run out of time to take a make and take this weekend.

    Not sure if that is what you're looking for )

    Try fusing 2 layers of fabric together and using those. Might have to try this myself.

    edit: LOL!! should have watched the video first. I assumed it was the one done with paper!

    I think the heavy duty heat and bond will hold up the best. have fun
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Terial Magic would probably work to keep the fabric stiff.

    Those are awesome and she is really a great instructor.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    They are easy to do with paper. We would have kids make them and hang them all the way down our hallways. It was kinda neat to see hundred's of them hung.

    I don't know how you'd store these or just make them yearly.

    I love Terial Magic! I use it instead of starch for bias edges.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Yes, Heat and Bond (the regular strength one) works very well for this little project. It is a challenge when you want your finished product to be less than 6 inches tall.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I think it would be fun to take the class.

    Saved it the tute. Be great to hang on a door if you can't do a wreath. Actually easier than I thought it would be!

    I have made lots of these out of colored papers but never thought of using fabric so this will be my next project to use up some more of my stash.
