Technique Tuesday with Gladys Love

Today’s techniques are:

  • stamping on fabric
  • thread painting on soluble stabilizer
  • simple beading
  • adding a fringe of woolen yarns

Gladys Love uses these techniques to create these stunning leaf vine luggage tags in her book Embellishing with Anything.

Click here to download a 6 page, full color PDF file that will guide you through these techniques as they apply to these luggage tags. The PDF also includes a bonus project! You’ll learn to make this beautiful leaf sprig ATC card, which has curved piecing and twin-needle top stitching. Gladys made the original with scraps of background cut from another quilt she was working on at the time.

You mentioned in the book that you and your husband go to Value Village, well, I to,o go there sometimes. I live in Sooke and walk along the beach off of Westcoast Rd. When I looked at your picture you did seem familiar, so perhaps we have cossed paths Take care

    These are some beautiful projects. It is fun adding things to make it even more lovely. It seems like more types of yarns, threads, beads are available.
