Post No. 2106 - Add A Quote

We have still the "Add A Quote" theme over at Try It On Tuesday - You have another week  to link your work to our theme! I have made a little sewing project in Mixed Media to share with you.
It's a case for my tablet - PC. The front is fabric sprayed with a stencil and spraycolour. The backside is just plain denim ( recycled from a jeans). I gave a batting and a patterend fabric as an inside protection. I stamped the quote with Archival Black Jet (waterproof ink) on white tissue paper and glued it to a white fabric with my selfmade Mod Podge ( recipe here). After it was dry I stitched it to the front.

Wir haben noch das "Füge ein Zitat hinzu" -Thema bei Try It On Tuesday
Du hast noch eine Woche Zeit, deine Arbeit  zu verlinken! 
 Ich habe ein kleines Nähprojekt in Mixed Media gemacht, das ich Euch gerne heute zeige.
Eine Hülle für meinen Tablet-PC.  Die Vorderseite ist Stoff, den ich mit Hilfe einer  Schablone und Sprühfarben besprüht habe. Die Rückseite ist einfach nur Denim (recycelt von einer Jeans). Ich habe ein Vlies und einen  gemusterten Stoff als Innenschutz gegeben. Ich stempelte das Zitat mit Archival Black Jet (wasserfeste Tinte) auf Seidenpapier und klebte es
mit meinem selbstgemachten Serviettenkleber  (Rezept hier) auf weisse Baumwolle. Nachdem es trocken war, stickte  ich es vorne auf.

to the T-S-F-T Gang!
I want to invite you to tea, coffee, or cereal-based coffee.

Please help yourself in the breakfast corner of our kitchen. 



  1. Nice case, very pretty! Happy T day and have a good week. hugs, Valerie

  2. What a fabulous design and such a useful pocket for your notebook, it will protect it beautifully xxx

  3. What a great project Susi and a wonderful idea.Thank you for sharing how you made it

    Happy T Day

    Love Chrissie xx

  4. Beautiful case! Love the idea of using your old jeans! Have a nice week!!!

  5. Its a fantastic project and a great idea, it is a more personal cover than the ones bought in the stores.
    I helped myself to a cuppa,
    Happy T day.
    Yvonne xx

  6. Eine superschöne Hülle für deinen Tablet-PC! Ich sah mir deinen Link an, und stellte fest, dass ich da bereits voriges Jahr einen Kommentar hinterlassen hatte. Deine Posts sind immer wieder interessant zum Nachlesen!
    Eine tolle Idee, Sprühfarben auf Stoff - und diese Schablone ist traumhaft schön, mit der weißen Farbe kommt das Muster richtig gut zur Geltung!
    Ich nehme eine Tasse Caro, bitte!
    Alles Liebe, Rike

  7. You have a new crafty obsession lately I see. And you are so good at it too. I never thought of stamping quotes on tissue and then adhering it to fabric. It looks so much better than stamping directly on fabric. And oh no- you didn't get snow! I hope it disappears fast and you can get back to spring. Even a little bit is so unwelcome at this time of year. :) Happy T day and hope it warms back up for you. Hugs-Erika

  8. Wie hübsch du die Hülle genäht und bedruckt hast mit diesen wunderbaren Zitat, klasse und ich wüsnche dir einen guten Start in die neue Woche!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  9. I'm not sure what happened, but my comment went up in smoke. I'm sure it didn't post, but can't really know for sure.

    I remember the mod podge post from before, because it was a great recycling post, too. This latest recycling effort was fantastic, and the jeans have found a new life that will outlast their original use. Truly a lovely project.

    I will have a coffee, please. I would love to join you for breakfast in your lovely new kitchen, where you share so many drink choices.

    Thank you for sharing your new recycled project, as well as your coffee, tea, and cereal based coffee with us for T this Tuesday.

  10. Wenn ich deinem link folge, wie du den Serviettenkleber herstellst, finde ich Seiten mit wunderbaren Texturen, so schön erklärt, liebe Susi. Da kannte ich dich noch gar nicht...
    Es ist immer wieder schön, hier zu dir zu kommen!
    Liebe Grüße von Ulrike

  11. Still not sure what happened, but I had to sign in for the first time in over three months to blogger in order to leave you a comment. I just hope the second one took, because blogger is starting to frustrate me this morning.

  12. I love your case, very pretty! I enjoy seeing what everyone creates
    what grains are in the cereal based coffee? s
    Happy T Day Kathy

  24. I'm in awe of you Susi.....that's all I can say apart from WOW
    Donna xx

  25. You did a fantastic job on the case!!!! I love it. Thanks for stopping by my blog too. It's always great to have visitors ♥

  26. What a delightful case for your tablet, Susi. And the quote - "Life is better ... when it's fun" - ain't that the truth?!

    When you say you stamped on tissue, I don't know what kind of tissue you mean. Is it tissue paper or some kind of fabric?

    Anyway, lovely case and Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

  27. Wunderschön dieser sanfte Farbverlauf und das tolle Schablonenmotiv. Ein richtiger Hinkucker ist deine tolle Hülle. Gefällt mir sehr.
    Liebe Grüße

  28. Isn't it great to combine art and usefulness. I have stared fascinated at this - the stencilling and the background colours, and the way you have made the quote with ordinary tissue paper, stamping and sewing. I would never have thought of adding words to a textile this way but it works wonderfully. And now you have a great case for your tablet with a button closure, what could be better, I love it all. Now I'm off to see how to make my own Mod podge.

  29. Lovely little computer bag. As Sheila said, it's great when you can combine your craft with making something useful.
    Thanks for the invitation. A Caro coffee for me please. Shall I bring some home made cake?

  30. I love the tablet cover - such lovely fabric! Caro coffee sounds like a good idea! Hugs, Chrisx

  31. What a fabulous visual for my life philosophy - I LOVE it!!

  32. I like the soft colors of your tablet case. Such a creative way to use up materials and protect your tablet. And a cup of tea would hit the spot right about now. Hope you're having a good day.

  33. Adorable, watch out someone doesn't snatch that cute case. xox

  34. A fab little case for your tablet, great design Susi!

  35. Dein Tablet Cover ist super geworden, liebe Susi! Es ist sehr schön frühlingshaft und der Spruch ist prima. Dein Tablet ist sicher auch begeistert. :)
    Ich wünsche Dir ein tolles Wochenende!
    Herzliche Grüße

  36. Lovely case for your tablet - I bet it's very happy now! I haven't had Caro for years (there's a similar thing called Barleycup here) - so I'd like a cup of that, please!

  37. Wonderful case - I swear Susi, you are so dang talented!!

  38. Fabulous case Susie they need to license your art!! These are so pretty!! Your art would be wonderful on tea towels, aprons, makeup bags...all such gorgeous colour combinations!

    Hugs Giggles
