It's me again. Paige has had a really rough month. Her kids have all had the Swine Flu and now she's sick with something....who knows what, but hopefully she'll be better soon! Pray for her and the fam that they all stay well.
This tutorial will show you how to make no-sew fabric covered wall art. I decided to do something for Caley's room again, although, the boys informed me that it was their turn so I'm gonna have to come up with something for their room too.
I was browsing Amy Butler's website and noticed some wall art with large letters that looked like they had been appliqued on using her new fabric line "LOVE." I immediately rushed to Hobby Lobby to get some fabric. Sometimes, well maybe all the time, I have a one track mind. I wanted to try and make something similar immediately so here's my version.
You will need:
1 yard of fabric for background
scrap fabric for letters
printed out letters that you have enlarged
1 1/2 yards of wonder under
The measurements for the one I made is 12" x 30" but you can make it however big or small you would like. First thing you need to do is print out your letters to the size you want then place them on your foam board to see how much you need to cut off. The first time I printed out letters I noticed they were too small. You don't wanna leave too much open space on the board. Cut your board accordingly to how much you measure out with the letters on there.
You will need to add 2 inches to the width and 2 inches to the height when cutting your fabric. So this fabric piece measured 14" x 32".
This stuff works great on fabric.In the pictures you'll notice that this fabric is actually doubled up but make sure that you put the right side of the fabric facing down then put your board on top. Fold down the corners using your Tacky Glue and press. It holds very well and dries fairly quickly.
