I have had plenty of ideas to do this for quite a while (usually every December when I pull out the made-in-China decorations and wish once again, that I had been more organised!) but just never got around to it.
Until I saw this beautiful wreath made by Pam at Bayside Rose the other day. It is just stunning and I wanted one, so I got the fabric yesterday, and before I knew it, I had turned this...
It was so much fun, and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! I'll definitely be doing more :)
The hardest part was choosing the fabric (although that may have had alot to do with the bored 4 yr old boy keeping me company on my trip to Spotlight...I could spend all day in there!)
I also purchased some alphabet panels, here they are here:
I cut around the letters with pinking shears, then stitched each letter to some denim, then cut around the denim, again with my pinking shears. Then I stitched each letter to a red gingham ribbon, and here it is...
It won't be staying there, I just had to find a wall for a quick photo right now!
Thanks, Pam, for giving me the inspiration to make a really cute project that makes me smile every time I look at it :)
