slice fabrique project…

Remember last autumn when I shared some fun Slice Fabrique projects with you? 

(here’s a link to the other posts 1, 2, 3)

Well, there are a couple more projects I haven’t shared yet. 

This little jacket is one of them.


There is actually a funny (kind of) story about this jacket.  You see, my original plan was to create a monkey hanging off the shoulder of this jacket.  I cut out, pieced together, and stitched the little monkey and started to iron him on…and quickly realized that I shouldn’t have tried to iron anything onto this jacket…it started to melt.  Yikes. 

I was totally stressing since Making Memories had sent me specific articles of clothing that I was supposed to embellish.  A jacket with melted holes?  Not good.

I figured all was lost and I was probably going to make someone angry…but I had a lot of work to do, so I moved on.  I was able to salvage the monkey and I attached him to the back pocket of these overalls and started working on something else.  (I think he looks cuter hanging off the pocket anyway.)


After everything else was complete, I decided to revisit the coat.  After checking out all of the slice card images, I decided maybe I could cover the melted portions with the rocketship on the Playtime card


What do you think?  If you look really closely you can see a bit of the melted parts…but I think I covered it pretty well.  Between the rocket and the strategically placed stars, hopefully the holes aren’t too obvious.


I added some more stars to the pocket to tie it all together – and sent it away with the other projects. :o)


P.S. I used fabric glue to attach the rocketship and stars the second time around…no heat! :o)


Don’t forget to leave a comment below for a chance to win this fun new book from Creating Keepsakes!

  6. Well, I am not a celebrity scrapper/card maker like most of these other commenters (L.O.L), but I have to say I love coming to your blog and being inspired (I also love Laur and Jen's blogs too). I also LOVE (collect, am addicted to purchasing)idea books and scrap magazines, so I would LOVE to win that book!

  7. I don't know why- but that makes me giggle! Oh- probaby because that's SO something I would do! What a great save! (and I love the monkey on the overalls!!)

  8. Oh my goodness! I am so incredibly impressed!!! I think I need to get to know you, so adding you to my Google reader, pronto. Get used to hearing from me, 'cause I think I likey!!! ;)

  9. PS -- I have to confess: on my first comment? I just looked at the pictures. Then I read through your post (I know, I'm backwards...) -- now I'm DOUBLY impressed!!! You make me want to put my Slice to work! I wonder if it remembers how?! :)

  10. I was just ironing my daughter's Chinese New Year dress for her to wear to school. I got in a hurry and turned the heat up and did the same thing. Oops! Funny, in the exact same place as the coat too! Why do we always start ironing on the front?!?!? LOL!

  11. Love these projects, Wendy. You did a great job with them. TFS!

  12. Nice job and clever thinking! Now when, oh when are they going to release that Fabrique?! :)
