PKS Happy Flower Shirt

Today is Day three of my Guest Design spot over at the Peachy Keen Home Blog

For today's post, I decided to venture into cutting fabric with their dies

 My niece could not keep a straight face.... I don't know what was more fun, trying to take her picture or creating this shirt!
 If you own these dies, you will agree why I got so happy to have found the perfectly matching fabric!
After my excitement and taking pictures, I realized I had not painted the flower's nose, tongue nor eyes.
Here you see them painted now!

I used Peachy Keen Stamps - CottageCutz dies that you can find at their STORE
The package comes with the faces and cute critters stamps included.

I followed the included instruction to cut stiff/thin fabric.
Ironed to Heat N Bond, run through cutting machine and ironed on to shirt.
I made my own stamp pad using fabric ink. Yes, it is washable!
1-got empty pad 2-added fabric ink 3-practice plenty 4-iron on top of it after 24hrs
5-now you can wash
 I love how the fabric matches perfectly the packaging colors! and I did not take the package to the store!
 Here are the supplies used -- with the brush I added fabric paint to a clean stamp pad -- It washes right off -- I used toothpicks to paint the tongues, eyes and nose.
Here you can see that I had to practice--
