Burnt Letters

Catching up the Burnt Letters e-h

And the Burnt Letters up close...

I trace the letters onto the fabric using my lightbox. If I did this again, I wouldn't cut all the squares of fabric first because sometimes it gets pretty hot when you are burning a section near the edge. Or perhaps if I centred the letter, there would be less problem, but I am considering doing something in the open spaces.
You have to also take into account that the just burnt section of fabric will be HOT. So when you reposition where you are holding it you have to be careful not to touch the section you just did. It cools fast, but you don't want to touch it straight away.

  1. Learning by sounds like it gets really hot Sandy! I also love that you learn things along the way - the small squares; maybe not next time. Still looking fabulous.
