Technique of the Week #41 – Craft Store Rub Ons
Project Hours: 1 hour
Design and Materials: 1/2 hour
Execution: 1/2 hour +
Because my quilts are art quilts made for the wall and are hardly ever (as in NEVER) washed, I decided to see if I could make some craft store rub-ons that are made for paper work on fabric.
The answer? Yup, you can. I only ironed this piece from the back so that I did not touch the rub-on with the iron directly, and it still worked out great. A simple design here to showcase 4 different rub-ons. These were literally in the dollar section of the store, but in any scrapbook section you can find some rub-ons. I do NOT know what will happen if washed, but I assume they will wash off. You may be able to cover them in a fabric or matte medium for permanence!
