Life is a journey not a destination. Profound, hey? At the moment life is fast, it's super-charged, break-neck, on steroids fast. You notice your daughter and has grown 3 inches in the last 5 minutes and your 'puppy' now suffers... Continue reading

Hi Gaelle, From memory (I did this tutorial some years ago!) I used cotton fabric and ironed for the transfer for about 5 to 10 seconds and let it cool completely before removing. My advice would be to do a small tester transfer first as different brands of transfers and fabric types could change the outcome. If you iron for too long you also run the risk of burring the fabric (I have done that too!). Good luck! I would love to see what you create. x Cate

Your Ease vs Time graphic is so very interesting and accurate. I also like to create craft tutorials (because I love it too!) and it takes so much time in testing initially and then re-creating for publishing. Look forward to hearing more!!

Do you love to knit? To me, something that has been knitted by hand has soul. The crafter has spent hours (and hours and hours....) creating and with each deft move of the kneedles, a little piece of love is... Continue reading

Usually when I think of leather it's: manly (see Leather vs Lather), rich in tones of chocolate and tan and robust for use in a saddle or sofa. But on the flip side it can also be pale and elegant,... Continue reading
