I tackled my latest project last night and early this morning. I would have more pictures for a tutorial, but I was multi-tasking. Last night while watching TrueBlood and this morning while making the kiddos breakfast.
How about a little hot glue on your french toast?
I found inspiration from these letters and followed the simple tutorial.
Supplies were simple. Fabric, scissors, fabric glue, padding, sharpie, hot glue gun.
Oh, and the letter, pictured below.
A little hint...just cut bigger and gradually go smaller. You can always cut more, even after gluing. I also glued one side of the letter and then the next, pulling tightly. The tutorial suggested gluing the face and then the sides.
I'm not a crafting genius and besides a few glue burns, it was easy. Maybe an "R" or "B" would be harder. When doing the sides, I simply eyeballed and cut a long stripe that was a little bigger than double the width of the letter. I used the fabric glue to fold over the fabric so there wasn't a frayed edge on one side.
I just hot glued the other side to the back of the letter. I did make cut outs (if that makes sense) to help make sure the sides were tight.
I do have rest of his monogram and enough fabric to complete the project. But I'm going to wait until we get the room more complete in case I want to throw in a few other patterns.
I think it matches pretty well:)
