Earth Day Blog Hop with StencilGirl Products & Earth Safe Finishes

Earth Day plus upcycling and using products that can be reused instead of filling landfills. Yeah!

Maybe 40 years ago I dyed fabric. As I recall, it was a smelly process involving boiling water. Using Earth Safe Finishes’ Fabric Magic Kit was a pleasant, unscented experience. Dying is just a matter of following the directions on the package 8 parts water to 1 part Fabric Magic, then add the pigments in drops to achieve desired color.

I made plans and the Universe laughed. But I got the last laugh this time 🙂

StencilGirl stencils used are from December 2015 StencilClub. The little loopy one gets a lot of use by yours truly! You can find out more about how to get exclusive club goodies HERE:

We had a little rain recently and the iris are in bloom. I shall make flowers!

Of course I am the Wearer of Many Hats. I like it best when I can interchange embellishments on my many hats. The black straw in the pic below seems to work well for this. I think I paid $6 bucks for it at a thrift store a couple years back. Definitely a favorite. The ribbon band is simply tied on. The flower is pinned in place. Stylin’!
