Quick Little Cath Kidston Fabric Make

During an online discussion with the lovely Sue last week I got to thinking about how to protect fabric and I was wondering if it could be laminated.

I envisaged that it might well catch fire but I tried it anyway, and it worked!

I had some scraps of Cath Kidston cotton duck left over from the spare handle from the Sew Bag I made, I chopped them up and laminated them.

I added some ribbons and some of my beloved buttons and lo and behold my CK Bookmarks:


p.s that is one of my favourite books it was a gift from a friend 12 years ago and it is still in my top 10, when I am looking for something to read it's the book I pick up the most.

p.s. I have just noticed that every post this week has in some way been related to Cath Kidston, you would think I was on commission, but I promise I'm not I just love her stuff!

Back Soon ♥

You clever thing - and brave. I'd be too scared I'd destroy the laminator (or, more importantly, the fabric...). Great idea. And you can never have too much CK so I look forward to more floral posts :o) Lucy xox

Amanda, that cutter is just an interchangeable blade that I got with my rotary cutter, I love it and use it quite often.

Those bookmarks are great Kandi. Wouldn't have thought of putting fabric in the laminator, thanks for trying it out for us! (Was the fire extinguisher at the ready?) Lovely finished effect with the buttons too. Nicky x
