PTI Make It Monday #130: Using Heat N' Bond to Make Fabric Die Cuts

This week Papertrey Ink has a tutorial and challenge hosted by Erin.  She has shown us a fabulous idea and technique to use our dies to create fabric iron-ons for our crafting pleasure.  Wow!  It's so easy and totally fun!!  If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find all the info here.

I went to my stash and dug out a burlap drawstring bag.  Then, I rummaged through my fabric bin and was pleasantly surprised to actually find some heat 'n bond in there!  I used Erin's technique to cut a doily out of muslin fabric and a circle with an owl cut out of it in vintage cream felt.  I used another circle cut out of muslin to stamp the owl and color it with Copics.  I stitched around the felt after ironing it onto the doily, then I ironed the doily onto the burlap bag.  Quite simple, really.

Stamps & dies are from PTI.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!


  1. Wow .. this is adorable. I didn't think the doily die would cut through the fabric and still show all the little details. Your owl treatment is really unique as well.

  2. Oh wow is your little bag ever so cute! I agree with the last comment, that doily is great touch, what a wonderful detail. You were the only one to leave a comment on my blog last week for my MIM for PTI. Thanks so much, I was beginning to think I should take it off my blog. Thanks for the kind, supportive words. Again, adorable bag, so cute! I will have to order that doily die now.
