Tutorial: How to Print on Twill Tape

In 2012, I took an on-line class on The Quilt Show: Fabric Fancification, by Lauren Vlcek. Lauren is a very talented fiber artist and doll maker. Check her out.


In our class, we learned to bead, applique letters and print on twill tape. Not only was this class fun, I also won Lauren’s sample when the class was finished.

I used a piece of hand-crocheted trim for the flower stem on the left. We also did some hand embroidery and used machine embroidery stitches as well as free-motion quilting. Lauren encouraged us to use fabrics besides cotton so I used some silk scraps and ribbon.

If you would like to learn to print on twill tape for a project of your own, see my tutorial, How to Print on Twill Tape. As noted, I washed one of my words in Ivory dish soap and there was no fading. I cannot guarantee the same results in the washer or with other soap. Have fun.

About bycandyp.com

Hi—I’m Candy P. I live in beautiful Northwest Arkansas and write this blog about quilting. I love the entire process of quilting from design to piecing and appliqué, to free-motion quilting on my Janome. I have been sewing since I was five and started quilting in 1991 with a group in NE Minnesota. We used cardboard templates and scissors and did everything by hand. I have since made traditional quilts, donation quilts and Quilts of Valor; I’ve done paper piecing and foundation quilting but now really enjoy improvisational piecing using scraps from my stash or my hand dyed fabrics as well as making art quilts. I am also currently trying to finish any and all unfinished projects. I am so far behind I can never die. I have always been a maker, a sewist and needleworker, running the gamut from hand embroidery to macramé, knitting, crocheting, crafts, book binding and mixed media projects. I have taught a lot of classes including fabric painting, origami, and calligraphy, Dancercise (who remembers that) and my own exercise classes. When I’m not in the garage dyeing fabric or in my studio, I’m at Zumba or walking on local trails and photographing art or whatever catches my eye. I currently belong to Crystal Bridges, AQS, The Quilt Show, NWA Modern Quilt Guild and the Van Go-Go Girls (a local art quilt group). I occasionally make it to the piano and the golf course and enjoy cooking with my husband and generally wreaking some kind of havoc with my daughter. You can read my previous blog at Kandykwilts.blogspot.com and here (previously icandyet.com) but you cannot read my blog as northwind at The Quilt Show, apparently lost forever. I write about my current projects, mistakes and all, and often tell you what products I use (with no compensation). I am open to suggestions about blog posts and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about my projects or posts. Comment or email me.
