My sis-in-law (Happy Birthday yesterday,Dana) bought the canvases and had us all sit and craft together. That's something about my husband's family... when we get together (I believe this was Thanksgiving), they don't just catch-up and visit. They have to be doing.
I don't mind. I call them a "memory making" family.
Anyhow... way off topic...
So, these canvases are 12x12. You can find them at Michael's or Hobby Lobby or online. They come plain white.
STEP 1. I measured and cut my fabric. A lot of people cover these with paper, but I found that fabric wraps a lot easier and I have a fabric obsession. So I used it instead. Make sure you leave room to wrap the canvas.
Step 2: Decoupage!! Glue that fabric on. Or, you could use a staple gun and staple it on. The choice is all yours. Let it dry, if you went the glue-route.
Step 3: Embellish. It really amazes me how similar fabric crafting and scrapbooking are. I used my scrapbooking supplies to embellish the canvases. The words "Believe in yourself" are vinyl. You can order this online with a simple search. I was lucky that Dana had a machine and did this for a while. I miss Dana's vinyl machinge (probably a lot more than Dana.)
Keep it simple and enjoy playing around with it until you like it.
Step 4: Stick everything on. Hot glue or glue dots or whatever you like best!
Step 5: Hang and enjoy! Remember, use 2 pins or nails to keep these hanging straight. Trust me. Don't make the me mistake I did. It's a really beautiful way to use up your fabric leftover from quilts in a room. Plus, it will match your quilt perfectly. *wink*
