I could be really mean and make y'all wait through this entire post to find out the winner of the giveaway.......but I won't. I love giveaways and I'm too excited to announce the winner, and way too impatient to hold out! Random.org generated the winning number, and the winner is.........
This weekend I got to work on a custom order for a baby's nursery. My friend wanted the letters covered in a coordinating fabric to the crib bedding. She special ordered the fabric and had it sent to me. Ummmm...stress! Did I mention that I've never covered letters in fabric, only paper??? For the life of me I could not figure out how to get the fabric on there without fraying. All of you seamstresses out there...please don't laugh! I don't sew....AT.ALL. My sewing consists of hem tape and hot glue. It's sad, but true.
I went to Hobby Lobby looking for Wonder Under, but found this stuff instead and decided to give it a try. It came with 5 sheets of double stick fusible web. Love, love, love it! It was so easy to use and worked beautifully.
I had these gingham letters I bought years ago for super cheap that just didn't match anything! They've been one of the many projects on my list that I've never gotten around to. I just flipped the letter and traced it the wrong way onto the paper.
Iron the protective paper and webbing onto the fabric.
Cut out the letter and peel the protective paper off (absolutely no fraying whatsoever).
It has the webbing on the back of the fabric now, but it is still repositionable.
Love that. Makes it much easier to work with because you can move it around on the letter until you get it just right!
Then I literally just ironed it right onto the letter. I was nervous to try this, but it worked perfectly. I was amazed. So quick, so easy, and really fun!
I made these to go over the upholstered headboard I made for the girls' room. But, I ran out before I could finish. I still have 4 more letters to do and I can't wait till Hobby Lobby opens in the morning.
These are part of the custom order I'm working on. Isn't that the sweetest fabric? You know I am loving that pink and green plaid! I hope they send me a picture of the letters in the room. I would love to see what it looks like all put together. With colors and fabric that cute...you know it'll be fabulous!
