Link Up for Pink!! Don't forget those we have lost and those who are fighting the fight!
My pin is very easy to make. I used fabric stiffener, Angelina fiber, an Iron, an adhesive backed bar pin, and sharpie stain color, also glitter glue, and my eCraft.
You use an iron with an ironing sheet to protect it from the heat. You place the fibers across each other, and then I use a teflon sheet on top to make it adhere to itself. Angelina only sticks to itself. A little goes a long way.
While I was making the Angelina into fabric I had coated my pink fabric with Stiffy, fabric stiffener. This stuff works great but there are many other brands as well on the market. I like the way that it makes my cotton fabric cut as easily as cardstock on my cutting machine.
I cut two butterflies out and glued them together, then I added the adhesive pin on the back side of my pin.
I cut the Angelina by hand and glued it to the wings of my butterfly.
I used Sharpie's new fabric stain pens to color my butterflies' wings. I love the rich color of these fabric markers.
I also used bottles of glitter glue to also embellish my bugs!
I love the glitter and very quickly I was finished with all of the bling!
