I'm totally thrilled to introduce you to my newest sponsor!
Kimberly from Poppy Seed Fabrics!
You guys are just going to DIE when you see everything she's got in her shop!
I couldn't help myself! I ordered her "custom fat quarter bundle" for myself.
You get 10 fat quarters of your choice for only $20 bucks! Whoo hoo!
When my package came, it was like Christmas morning. I was SO excited!
I mean look at all this AWESOME fabric goodness!
I knew exactly what I had in mind for my first project, so I got to work!
I found this plastic oval frame at our local thrift store... a couple weeks back, for .75 cents... with this totally awesome print inside
I spray painted it black
I forgot to take a before picture... but
It was originally this gold color.
They have SO many of these gold plastic frames at my thrift store, in all different sizes... don't know who originally thought plastic, gold, and ugly cheap print insert would shape out to make a great piece of art... lol???
Anyway... I took my fat quarter, that I ordered from Kim, and laid my oval frame insert on the fabric and cut out a square... like so.
Then I took the square, and ironed it nice and flat.
Then I centered the oval, and made little marks around the edges, so I knew exactly where to lay the insert back down, once I lifted it up.
I then took the insert outside and sprayed one whole side with spray adhesive, and laid it flat down on the fabric... smoothing it out, to make the fabric lay flat.
Then I flipped it over, and used the same spray adhesive, around the edges, and wrapped the fabric.
The end result looked like this!
(not pretty, but no one will ever see it)
Here's the front.
Next, I applied a black vinyl "S" to the fabric, that I had cut out.
Then I sprayed a protective gloss over the frame... put back in the fabric covered, monogrammed insert,
and NO SEWING involved :)
I've been wanting to change up our entryway table a bit, now that spring is over, so this cute oval frame was a great start!
I put mine in this little white trough, with some other fun home decor items, and placed a chunky little silver frame
(also from the thrift store, for .50 cents. It's a little scratched up, abut nothing that a little silver spray paint won't be able to fix up!)
with a fun phrase, next to it, to welcome our visitors!
I LOVE all the black and white, silver and grey with splashes of green and blue!
It just makes me so happy!
I also made this SO CUTE fat quarter, grey and white polka dot pillow with ruffle flowers!
I've wanted a different colored pillow for our entryway, and once I got my fat quarters from Kimberly, I KNEW that I just HAD to make my new pillow from this delish fabric :)
Here is a photo of how it turned out!
