Cat, Fabric and .../Gatti, stoffa e...

 
 Some couple of days ago I stumbled on a beautiful post about cat lovers: not only the craft projects but also the words inspired me so much (spent 5 minutes on reading it, for cat lovers it worths it :-)).
Soooo the same evening, I made a little-crazy-fast project to add pizzaz to my black laptop. I luv it!

Qualche giorno fa sono capitata su un bellissimo post che parlava di amore per i gatti, con un piccolo progetto fatto su una tela canvas. La sera stessa, ho alterato in men che non si dica, il mio laptop nero, quanto mi piace adesso!
 E' molto semplice da fare:
 1)stampare la silhouette e tagliarla
 2) incollare qualche pezzetto di libro
3) ingessare

4) spruzzare con inchiostri e stencils e stampare

Ed infine INCOLLARE! Senza pensarci due volte!

Four step: 
1) print from the post the cat silouhette and cut it
2) glue some pieces of paper leftovers
3) gesso
4) spray inks through some stencil
GLUEEEEEE to the laptop!(don't think twice!)

And speaking about fabric: I lost my kindle case...where-where is it? Dunno! Soooooooo I needed a new one for me and a one for my friend Gina.
E a proposito di stoffa, sono riuscita a perdere la custodia del Kindle, pubblicata giusto qualche giorno fa...E quindi eccone una nuova  per me e per la mia amica Gina
 

 I found out the an A4 size (210×297 cm/8.3×11.7 in) is perfect to make an orizontal Kindle case. The fastest technique to make these fabric case is :
1) cut a piece of canvas A4 size
2) spray inks and stamp on a long strip of fabric
3) glue the fabric to the piece of canvas and trim the excess
 4) fold in 3 and sew two sides of the canvas along with a strip of batting. Done!!
Ho scoperto che un foglio A4 è la misura perfetta per fare la Kindle pochette orizzontale.
La tecnica più veloce:
1) tagliare un pezzo di canvas dimensioni A4
2) incollare un pezzo di stoffa , decorato o comprato, sul canvas
3) rifilare l'eccesso di stoffa
4) piegare in 3, cucire sui due lati insieme ad un quadrato di imbottitura. Fatto!

I participate on the challenge: Simon says stamp and show What are you known for? I think I well known for altering everything, my love for cats, and my passion for colourful sewed pieces!

And my latest two little page on my fabric ArtJournal, inspired by  the Scrappin' Sister challenges:

I also love your Kindle cover that you made. You won't lose this one!! It's too cool to lose! I also love your two art journal pages that you're sharing with us. I particularly love the second one as I tell my grandchildren that I love them to the moon and back! :) The way you have embellished that page is awesome!

Hi Gio, so many apologies for being missing lately. I soooo love your cat on your laptop - I've just been weighing up the lid on mine and wondering what I can glue onto it, lol :-)! I LOVE your kindle case and you've made it look so easy, so I may just have to have a go and make one for my mobile phone. Your journal pages are fabulous, I love the moon one in particular. You are so talented Gio, and so very inspiring!

Take care
