IHAN's 30 Days of Giveaways
from Rockland Industries
If you missed the first post about Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth you can see it here. IHAN held a Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Challenge last year and we had lots of great entries. If you are not familiar with Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth here is a photo.
Here is another beautiful project using Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth that was entered in the IHAN Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth Challenge.
Small Cosmetic Bag
Both of these were submitted by Vickie Collier.
Vickie's description, "After lots of thought I really wanted to try as much as I could with this fabricFirst I made a table centre piece out of some lovely Ginger Blossom fabric by Sandi Henderson for michael millerI then photographed the mat and printed in on the Roc-Lon..and trimmed all edges with pinking shearsThen I machine sewed the zip in...I hole punched the long sides and twisty threaded a green ribbon thru....turned it inside out and machine sewed the corners across to form bottom boxing...I hand sewed the strap and added some bling....then popped a bling zip pull on the zip..Thank you so much for the opportunity to try something new..I'm happy that I managed too use the Roc-Lon in several forms of craft(so to speak)"
Here is another idea for using Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth.
Check out this fantastic laser cut stencil using Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth. Laser Excel has a fantastic site with tons of ideas for cutting stencils. The Multi-Purpose Cloth is soft and flexible. It is easy to use on flat, curved or oddly shaped surfaces. It doesn't frey and is durable which allows for intricate designs to be cut. I think this would be an excellent resource for designs you may want to use over and over again. It would create very interesting layering effects too.
Rockland Industries have not only sent the Multi-Purpose Cloth but some wonderful Osnaburg 100% Cotton Muslin too!!!
Osnaburg Muslin has the look of Linen. It is wonderful for making Chenille blankets, clothing, rag quilts, primitive doll making, curtains, decorative towels and placemats. Osnaburg Muslin is beautiful with Machine Embroidery as well as Shiva Paintstiks.
Pat Smith is a folk doll artist. This is one of my favorite dolls she has made. Who could not love this frog?
"I love to use Osnaburg in the creation of many of my dolls. The material has a wonderful texture and gives my folk art dolls an "old fashioned" look and feel."
There is a fantastic Chenille tutorial using Osnaburg Muslin to make a great jacket on Sheila Reinke's blog, The Heart of Sewing. Sheila has made a beautiful jacket, hop over and check it out.
Roc-lon Osnaburg Muslin comes in white, natural, gold, rust, sage, forest, red, navy, wine, black, bright green, hot pink, turquoise. Click here to see the color chart. It is pre-shrunk (5-7% Residual Shrinkage).
