Simple Sunday

The next lesson in the Fabric Embellishing book calls for some supplies that I don’t have yet, so I skipped ahead to the next one.  We’ll come back and pick up the missed technique later.

P3110003Today was a very simple technique . . . using brads!  I don’t think I have ever thought of using brads on a fabric project, but it’s super easy and with the wide assortment of brads available, it can really perk up a piece.

Adding brads is a one-two process.  One – poke a hole, Two – insert brad!  Brads can be used alone – like the picture above – or you can use them to attach other items.

P3110004Things like ribbon or another piece of fabric.

P3110002 And things like charms or other embellishments.  I had to poke a hole in those hearts, too, but that’s not hard.

P3110001Here is the page I added them to.  You might remember this from the lesson on using Tyvek.  I layered this page with the page from last week and added binding.

So there it is.  I can see I’m going to have to look for more decorative brads the next time I’m shopping for crafts!
