Abigail Brown: creature textile designer extraordinaire - news Last week I had a little photo shoot at my friend's house. Kate and Adam are the people behind Dead Dolls Club andTinker Tailor.

52 Reasons | Redux This is one of the first crafts I'd ever posted online. I used to belong to a community called Craftster.org (waaaay back in the day). It's still around but I rarely remember to visit. How to transfer an image to fabric with gel medium I experimented with transferring an image onto fabric the other day. For my test, I used this completely adorable dachshund drawing by Kayanna Nelson of June Craft. The little fellow is downloadable for personal use at Bloesem Kids.
