Have you been checking out all the fun new products released at the most recent Craft & Hobby Association trade show? One of the big trends is metallic - with gold by far being the most prevalent. Therm O Web debuted their new iCraft Deco Foil which comes in gold and 16 other colors and can be applied to paper, fabric, and other surfaces in a variety of ways.
Aren't these colors great? I wanted to try them all and so decided to make a snowflake sampler piece of fabric that I plan to turn into a festive throw pillow to use during the holidays.
To adhere the foil to the fabric I used Heat n Bond and it worked like a charm. I was really impressed at how crisp and detailed the snowflakes turned out.
It was my first time using Heat n Bond and I was able to get the hang of it after a slight hiccup (not realizing that I needed to apply heat in order to bond... duh!)
I still can't choose a favorite color. So many possibilities with this!
The team has lots more ideas for using this over on the Therm O Web blog. You can find my step-by-step tutorial for using Deco Foil on fabric HERE.
Thanks for visiting today. I'd love to hear what you think of this new product. Have a great day!
