Leather Pouch for spin top- With a spin top image!
« on: December 03, 2019, 04:54:41 AM »

Hello folks!
Today I made a small print for my spin top pouch  :)
Needed a good pouch for my new spin top I got from Larry D.

Made of flock material.  At my work where I volunteer , we have a plotter machine.
It's actually very simple. 
An image is uploaded on the computer,  'and traced over'.
My 'boss' Nancy,  can work with this program,  I can't . You need to choose how big .
After it's send to the plotter , it's 'printed' on the flock.
I do the job for getting out the figure on the flock.  You need patience!
After that,  the figure is laid on the pouch,  T-shirt or another fabric.
Then we use the hot press to 'melt' the glue of the flock,  thus sealing it on the fabric.  It can be washed,  it won't wash off.
 pull off the plastic cover and.. done!
Here's the result! My spin top pouch  :D
I got the image on google .






I just needed to pay for the tiny amount of flock material used.  €1! ;D
I like how it came out!
