Bunny Banner

**There is still time to enter my giveaway here.**
I've been wanting to make a fabric bunny banner for quite a while now.  Last night, I decided to give it a go using this great bunny silhouette from The Graphics Fairy.
First thing I did was trace my pendants onto some muslin.  Then I printed out my image onto TAP (Transfer Artists Paper) paper.  It was the first time I've ever used it and I must say I'm hooked already!
I first heard about TAP from Susan at Homeroad.  You can use it like regular iron-on transfer paper, but it can also be used to transfer images onto wood, metal - you name it!  I got mine off of eBay but Amazon also sells it.

I love that the image doesn't look like it was ironed on.  It almost looks like a silkscreen.  I don't see any edging; it's like the image just melted onto the fabric!  

I finished up my bunnies by adding little cotton tails.  I'm hanging it with some twine and clothes pins.

Hi Jeanine,
I've never heard of TAP before - sounds great. I may have to break down and buy an iron. :)
You've been busy creating some great things... took me a while to catch up with your posts.
Have a great one,
Lin
