Rooster Sketch in Journals and Totes

I've said it before and I'll say it again....everything I own is for sale - except my husband. But, there are times when I would gladly give him away. Not yesterday, or today...the good feeling continues to remain even a day later.

When I arrived home from my Schwinn spin class yesterday, dearest met me at the door with "clean your feet" I did. He had just finished vacuuming!!! It makes me so mad when he won't let me help!!!

With all this time on my hands, I decided to finish a few more projects.
A notebook covered. I've been printing my sketches on fabric and decided to put them into a project.

Perfect size for journaling on the go.... almost 8"x10".

The rooster was stitched onto a printed music sheet. What a lark when I found this song - "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go"....the perfect backdrop for Mr. Rooster all stitched onto this canvas tote bag.


  1. I like Mr. Rooster. I've never printing anything onto fabric before. Is it easy?

  2. Very easy. I buy the 8.5 x 11" Avery shipping labels at office depot and stick my fabric onto that. Trim off excess fabric and run through inkjet printer. The Avery Label will usually last through 10-12 printings so the cost per sheet is not unbearable. The 100 pack is the best price. An alternative is to iron fabric onto freezer paper and cut to printer page size. Let me know how your does.

  3. Oh, Marty ~ Your Christmas pillows are wonderful ... the ROOSTER is darling, a delightful journal cover.

    You will continue to amaze me with your talents.

    Have a great eve ... & wipe your feet, please! Chuckle!
