Felt and wood Rainbow Fish necklace, brooch and hair pin

Tina likes the rainbow fish and I think that most of the children do. As I was making those I discovered something potentially cool.


 Do not know - you have to tell me. It is a product from a German company called Rayher. I have no idea if you guys can buy this in the US. I quickly did a search, but only found it in GB. Possibly you  have similar products to purchase. I have not seen projects using any of these or similar in the blog land.

Anyhow, it is a line of special fabric stencils. They are almost like the ones used in screen printing. You get very detailed and clean results using those. The also have fabric paints, but because I am totally in love with Marabu fabric paints, I am not willing to try. Then the coolest (drum roll please!) is a special glue that you can apply to fabric, cover with flitter or rub- off foil, iron it and becomes like a rubbery texture that we know from T-shirts and the best - it is washable!

This is what the stencils look like and the foil underneath. In the white areas is a mesh like fabric and the stencils are self adhesive. Cool!




But back to the actual project I wanted to show you. Using the special glue, flitter, the rub- off foil and some hot set stones I made the rainbow fish accessories.  I made a necklace, a hairpin and a brooch in the same style.


My friend liked it so much, that I had to make one right away for her neece in France. I did not get feedback yet, but I think she will like her Bluppi Blubb.


In the next post I will show you a t-shirt refashion project with this cool product.
