A fun and fast tutorial on using Heat and Bond to create framable pieces of art. 

First, assemble all the required materials: scraps of fabric, Heat and Bond (purple), old vintage-y frames from Goodwill, embroidery floss (sewing machine- optional).

Next, pick your color combinations and desired shape. Simple is best when choosing an image to cut and embellish. I used the fox, a whale, mushroom, silhouette of Indiana and a cloud. Iron the Heat and Bond according to package instructions to the BACK of the fabric for your shape. Flip your shape backwards( you want shape to appear backwards as you trace) to trace onto papery side of Heat and Bonded fabric; cut.

Traced my Foxy backwards onto papery side of Heat and Bonded fabric. Cut out and iron onto background fabric; make sure to center and have enough extra fabric around edges to tape around frame backing.
