Hi everyone – Andy here from A Bright Corner.  Recently I made this fun tote bag using some of my favorite iCraft® DecoFoil™ colors and  fabrics from Dear Stella.


For the fabrics I used these great prints from the Mika line (Dear Stella.)

I loved this chubby star motif from this one Dear Stella print –

So that’s my inspiration for how I used the Deco Foils™:

Here’s how I did it!  On a piece of blank paper, I sketched out the star in a size that I wanted and traced over it in black marker (you need to be able to see the design through a sheet of iCraft® Deco Foil™ Hot Melt Adhesive.)  You could also use a design printed from the computer like I did with these butterfly shapes I used for a different project.  It’s the same process.

Lay the sheet of iCraft® Deco Foil™ Hot Melt Adhesive on top of the design you want, and with a pencil, lightly trace around each shape.

Cut out each shape directly on the lines.

Now the shapes are ready to be ironed on to the fabric as directed on the Hot Melt Adhesive packaging.  This is a great way to use design inspiration from fabrics and other sources to use with your DecoFoils!
