guest post-framed fabric silhouette

Check out my quick and easy gift idea over on Creation Corner’s Handmade Christmas series today! I’m sure there are going to be some AWEsome ideas for handmade gifts. I can’t wait to get some ideas! 😀

You’ll need:
heat n bond
fabric scraps
pencil for tracing
picture to trace
fabric or hot glue
frame (not shown)
 First, we’re going to trace around your image onto the heat n bond. Make sure the image is BACKwards from how you want it to appear when you trace it. There are two sides of the heat n bond-trace onto the papery side. I use a pencil so I don’t get ink on my iron.
 Grab your fabric scrap, and lay it right side down…iron flat to get any wrinkles out.
Then place your traced piece papery side up, adhesive side down, and press with your iron on the cotton setting for about 3-4 seconds.
 let it cool off for a minute, then cut it out carefully.
 Now you have your applique!
 Take out the cardboard insert from your frame, and cut out a piece for the background, leaving about 1-2 inches around it.
 Then, center your applique, and iron it down like so, for about 12-15 seconds. (still on the cotton setting)
 Position it using your cardboard insert, then flip over and trim the corners like so.
 Glue down the sides, making sure it’s pulled snugly around the front.
 Then glue the other two sides down. Let it dry…
Pop it into your frame, and you’ve got a fun art piece! This particular one is for my mom’s sewing room.
I made this monogram by wrapping the fabric around an old canvas and stapling it to the back. These would also look great in an embroidery hoop!

So many options…and so easily customized for gifts!
