Here are some ideas to inspire:

FREEZER PAPER STENCILLING AND SCREEN PRINTING

Cut out the designs using a craft knife or cutting machine and apply the stencils to… anything! Clothing, bags, pennants,… Screen printing in particular allows you to easily apply several colours by creating separate stencils for different elements of the design and printing each layer one at a time to build up the image.

HEAT TRANSFER VINYL (HTV) / ADHESIVE VINYL

Similar to freezer paper, this can be cut using a craft knife or cutting machine. HTV can be applied to all fabrics, such as the Pinky Promise Bag shown here. It can also be layered so you can have several colours in one design.  Adhesive vinyl can be applied to almost all surfaces- your sewing machine, a pencil holder, drink bottle,…

FREE MOTION EMBROIDERY AND APPLIQUÉ (FME/FMA)

Alphabet FMA using OT19 playtime images
Using a darning foot on your machine and small sItch length, ‘draw’ with your sewing machine! You could sew directly on a garment, or make it on a scrap of fabric then appliqué. You could also layer up a design using different pieces of fabric then FMA the edges, adding definition and design lines.

HAND-SEWING
