I got an idea to try an experiment! The paper that is used in coloring books reminds me of the paper that we use for FPP. It isn't as thin though. Anyway I thought...I wonder if I could sew right on top of that and then rip the paper off and have a sewn drawing underneath. Sew I got some coloring books from the Dollar Store.
I used masking tape to tape down the page that I wanted. Isn't he cute?
I used a clear applique foot and sewed right on the lines.
I used a 1.5 mm stitch length so that the paper would be perforated enough to easily tear and carefully ripped the paper off. Wha lah!!
I am not totally finished but you get the idea. See his outline? I colored him in with colored pencils and will be adding more stitched detail too! This is exciting since I bought about 8 coloring books :) So many different themed ones for only a buck! Halloween, Christmas, Flowers, Princesses, etc... Unitl next time have a Kwilt Krazy day!
