By using a lighter colour and a liner block this creates a background pattern then with the brighter/ bolder colours over the top creates the eye catching pattern for your shoulder bag.

Kids craft patchwork quilting

Patchwork for children

Here is a kids craft idea for patchwork quilting.

Quilting-patchwork-block-prints  Quilt-in-a-day  patchwork-kids-crafts-block-printsKids crafts is so much fun using block prints. during the holidays why not try block printing a quilt in a day. Children can easily block print lovely patchwork pieces to stitch into a colourful quilt. Quilting for youngsters can be very rewarding if you use great colours and wooden printing blocks. if you want to know how to make a quilt here are some simple instructions.

How to block print your own fabric

1) Choose a selection of random sized fabric to use as your patchwork.

2) Block prints are created using wooden printing blocks to print onto each piece of patchwork. Remember you must have a foam mat underneath your fabric to create a clear block print.

3) Children can just print in straight rows for a simple and easy effect.

4) Try and play with different patterns with your wood stamps to create different designs. There is so much you can do with just one block by rotating it and placing it in different positions.

5) Use Colouricious fabric paints which you simply iron to fix. The fabric paints that we recommend are very reliable. When they have been fixed the colour stays permanent and you can wash your fabric up to 40 degrees without damaging the paint. Also the fabric stays soft and is not hardened by this paint.
