Hi everyone, it's Etsuko My favorite things with you today, and I'd like to share with you Cute Critters Fabric hanging using my favorite Elena's stamps.

I've always been interested in fabric dolls since I've noticed those made from Elena stamps by Lauren hatwell, but I don't know how to make dolls of different sizes from the same stamps. And recently I found out on YouTube how to print on fabric with an inkjet printer. OK I do it, from then on, these dolls are really lovable and I can't stop being addicted.

First of all I prepare A4 full sheet sticker paper for inkjet printer and attached to white cloth as not to be wrinkled. The important thing is to choose a printer that drags paper from the top. I stamped lovely new Christmas Elena stamps ZA49.

The images are stamped on white card , scanned, captured on a PC, resized and printed on a cloth. Printer preset--plain paper, gray scale.   Printing quality--high. After printing on the cloth, beforehand iron a cloth so that the ink on the print dose not bleed.

When I started making, I painted all colors on the paper, scanned, printed and finished, but I was not satisfied with the finished colors it was dull. Then I printed only the black outline and applied Fresco paints directly to the cloth with using Stain Glazing matt, the red patterned fabric was pasted with Mod Podge. 


I used Fresco paints mostly these colors for these critters. Fresco colors-- Mustard Pickle, Peach Nectar, Chocolate Pudding, Mocha Mousse, Tikka, Buff, Glass Blue, Bougainvillea, Turquoise, Eggplant, French Roast.

I sewed the red wear outline before filling cotton. Then cotton, pressed cotton, adhesive cotton and white cloth were stacked in order and then zigzag sewing machine was applied, I cut the around the doll and attached a string for hang on the top and finished.

This is the finish of Cute Critter, can't stop making them. --ZA49




Making a doll is magical by cutting the shape and stuffing a little cotton. All of them are small critters of about 13cm, so just putting them in the own craft room makes them look fun. It's easy and fun to make stamps. Would you like to make one?
Thank you so much for visiting.

This is amazing, Etsuko - your little fabric doll characters are a complete delight... So clever to alter the sizes and print on the fabric, and brilliant colouring with the paint on each image. What an inspirational post.
