I'm currently in the middle of an awesome sewing project. I'm super excited about it! I'll share more next week. The problem though was that I needed something to share for this week. I had some extra material from my project and thought of something that would be perfect.
Those who know me well, know I love frames! This was fun and quick to do.
I started with some left over material, a wooden frame ($1.99 full price), and some trim.
I ironed the material to make sure there weren't any wrinkles. I then traced the frame on the back side of the material. This material has a pattern that I wanted to make sure would come out straight. This way, I would know where to lay it when it was wet with glue. Before I started, I cut an X in the middle part of the material. This made it easier to work with after the frame was on and wrapping the material to the back.
I pulled out the trusty mod podge. (Melissa should be proud!) I brushed the front of the frame and then laid it on the material. I used the mod podge to keep the material flat and not see any glue bumps coming through.
I then pulled the material up on the back opposite sides. I brushed the mod podge on the back of the frame. (I did not put mod podge on the material on the front of the frame. I wanted to keep it looking soft).
To do the corners, I pulled out the glue gun. I wanted it to stick quickly. I folded the corners in and then down. I then covered the back to finish it off.
I also used the hot glue to apply trim to the frame.
And here's a look from the side:
Now... Back to my other project!
