So, what do you do when you can't find what you need .... you make it right? (or attempt to!) Well, I LOVE the look of handwriting (hate the fact that "they" might discontinue teaching good old cursive handwriting in school .... I learned cursive from nuns .... and it was serious business let me tell you !) ANYWAY, as I was saying, I LOVE the look of cursive handwriting and wanted it on fabric. I have seen "handwriting " fabric somewhere (don't remember where) but I didn't really feel like searchinig for it and thought "how hard can it be ? I have fabric, I have a pen, and I can write" so ......
here it is ... well, it's nothing that I would show Sister Victoria (I think I got a "C" in penmanship as I recall) but ......
....in small doses I think it'll look OK. (I just wrote out the words to the song "Swinging on a Star"). By the way, ironing freezer paper to the back of the fabric stabilizes it and makes it easier to write on . Also, the pen I use is a Millennium pen ......found it at either AC Moore or Michaels I think.
AND, speaking of the art of handwriting,
how about Moonbeams Boy Evan's latest art of doodling ..... aka "this is a boring class"
....pretty cool !
Guess he was bored to tears !!!
Be back soon!
