Get creative and make a pretty stamped fabric vase cover that you will want to keep out all of the time. These make wonderful gifts too.
Disclosure: I was provided with the product for the purpose of this review
I recently received some fabulous Faber-Castell Mix & Match products to try out. After days and days of procrastinating as to what I should make with them – and perusing every single page of the design memory craft blog I had an idea while washing dishes. I happened to be washing out a large crushed garlic jar to pop into the recycling bin when I finally had an idea to turn it into a vase and add a fabric vase cover to it.
How to make a stamped fabric vase cover
- Vase or glass jar
- Sewing machine (and thread)
- Mix and Match products – see below
The products I received from Faber-Castell were the Mix & Match Mixed Media Sampler and Color Gelatos & Clear Stamp kit.
With the various products in the Mix & Match collection, you can create absolutely stunning pieces of work.
Using a tape measure, take the measurements of your jar and cut out a piece of the canvas allowing an extra 5mm all around for a hem.
Choose a clear stamp and attach it to a stampers block. Fill in the detail on the stamp using the Color Gelatos – you can brush over these with water to create a watercolor effect. I used 3 colors on mine: Metallic pink gelato around the outside, orange just inside that, and yellow toward the center of each wing. Stamp onto your canvas.
I then used the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil in red to highlight the details around the butterfly. These pencils are permanent, but again, if you brush a little water over the top it creates a beautiful watercolor effect.
Color over a worded stamp using the Metallic PITT® Artist Pen and stamp just underneath the butterfly. I did this in two stages as the phrase was quite long and I wanted to separate it over two lines.
Using a Yellow Gelato in a downright position stamp a few scattered circles around your design.
Create a frame around your design using a PITT® Pastel Pencil. Add highlights using the Metallic PITT® Artist Pen.
I had a cardboard scrapbooking frame that I used as a stencil to create the frame around my design.
Sew hems on the top and bottom of your canvas using a zigzag stitch to prevent fraying. Stitch the open side together using a straight stitch to make a sleeve and very carefully wiggle it down over your jar.
The possibilities truly are endless with these amazing products.
